    Kneeling Soldier Kneeling allowed a soldier greater accuracy than standing because he could balance his elbow on his knee. The M1 Garands that most American World War II army men carried were heavy and powerful, so the extra support was needed. Prone Soldier Soldiers would drop to the ground and find cover to avoid enemy fire or to cross an open field. "Keep your head down" was the advice given to those new to the battlefield. A soldier could also fire from the prone position, using the ground or fallen trees for support. Platoon Commander The Army was divided into smaller fighting groups for easier maneuvering in large-scale battles. The smallest unit was a squad, which contained 12 men. A platoon was made of three squads and was commanded by a lieutenant. Three platoons formed a company, which was commanded by a captain. Soldier with .45 Thompson The Thompson .45 caliber machine gun and the Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) were the automatics of choice for American soldiers during World War II. The Thompson is recognized by its distinctive 20-round clip, and 1.5 million of the weapons were made during World War II. Standing Soldier The U.S. Army infantry mostly carried M1 Garands during World War II. These heavy rifles held eight rounds and were incredibly accurate. Once empty, the rifles made a distinctive pinging sound as the clip was ejected. Soldier with Radio Backpack radios were first used during World War II. Although they made communication in the field easier, they were heavy and uncomfortable for the men who carried them. The radios were housed inside a canvas backpack, with flaps to access the receiver, transmitter, and antenna.
