Soldier Throwing Grenade

Price: $45.00


King & Country

A kneeling rifleman holds his M1 ‘Garand’ in his left hand as he prepares to hurl a grenade at the approaching enemy.
Most infantrymen carried at least 2 x grenades with them... either the small, smooth-finish grenade or the standard MKⅡ ‘Pineapple’ version.
The danger area was a nominal 10/11 yards (9 metres/27 feet) circle around the explosion and throwers were well-advised to be behind cover when the device went off!

This group of GIs are armed with a broad selection of weapons and ready to repulse the surprise German attack, which erupted on the morning of 16 December 1944 in the area of Belgium known as... ‘The Ardennes’.
