Although the British Army fought on many fronts during the years 1944 and ‘45, this set is evidently focused on the campaign in Normandy and the resulting push into Germany. After the disaster of Dunkirk four years earlier, by June 1944 the British Army had recovered well and landed almost 60,000 troops on D-Day, with the number growing to over 630,000 by D+50. Some of those men found themselves fighting on much the same ground as their fathers had done a generation earlier, but this time the advance continued into Germany itself, where a military presence was established that continued for many decades.

Weapons. Such an important element of any 20th century set, and by 1944 the British infantryman could potentially carry one of many. Of the poses that are armed, 12 have rifles, three carry Stens and two have Brens. The rifles are nicely done and correctly depict the SMLE, while the Stens are equally nicely done and again quite accurate. We can have no complaint about the quality of the Bren guns either, so good news there.

This hard plastic set is pretty nicely sculpted, and some of the figures require assembly. Detail is very good everywhere, although the faces are a little overdone in terms of both size and the depth of the features. The separate parts are in no sense ‘snap-on’ and all require glue, while some are fairly tricky to position correctly. However the fit is good, and there is no flash, while the opportunity to introduce variance in some of the poses is welcome.
