Heading up the Line Two U.S. Infantry Marching in Greatcoats, 1943-45

With the introduction of the M1943 field uniform it was thought that the double breasted 32 oz Melton Wool overcoat first introduced in 1927 would be relegated to dress, parade, and furlough wear. However, the failure of the Allies to build up adequate supplies of the new warmer M1943/wool jacket combination forced the army to continue to use the Melton overcoat in front line service. During the German surprise offensive in the Ardennes many soldiers were rushed to the front with inadequate winter clothing, so the availability of the heavy overcoat was welcomed. These two figures could easily represent men from any number of infantry or parachute divisions sent to stop the German attack in the hilly woodlands of Luxembourg and Belgium during the winter of 1944-45.
