By 1945 the U.S. army was the best equipped and most powerful on the planet, and over 11 million would serve in its ranks between 1941 and 1945.

The classic M1 helmet is worn by all, sometimes with netting and sometimes without, although there is no evidence of the straps for the helmet or liner on anyone. All wear a jacket which from the length and arrangement of pockets seems to be the arctic field jacket. The men all wear trousers which show no signs of any pockets, and they all wear the M1938 canvas leggings which were standard kit for those early war years.

As always in such sets the weapons on show are of major interest. Four of the 12 poses carry a rifle, which we could not positively identify, but looks like the Springfield M1903 on the sentry figure. One man holds an M1 carbine, and three others have Thompsons. The last figure in the middle row is holding a Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR), which is fine, while the first in the next row is holding a flamethrower. Lastly we find the venerable but still used Browning M1917A1 machine gun with its gunner.

The usual good standard of Caesar sculpting is in evidence here, with good detail and realistic proportions. There is some extraneous plastic in some places – most notably between the arms of the M1917A1 gunner – but there is no flash.

Nice sculpting and (for the most part) clean production makes these figures useful for building up the numbers in your US army, without roaming far into pastures new. The universal use of the jacket makes one think of the European theatre rather than the Pacific, and the style is more pre-1944, although nothing precludes any of these figures being used in any theatre and any time up to August 1945.
