Interesting stories. 82nd AB Troopers jumping into Normandy with B.A.R's. Ineffective M1 Carbines and armour piercing Garand's.

SGT. Lazenby jumped into Normandy with a 12 guage in addition to his Garand. If you google Harvill Lazenby, read the PDF from veteransmagazine.com

Interesting read. My favourite bit by far was the imitation of the emptying of the M1 Garand clip. lol.
