During the largest conflict in world history, weapons were produced on a scale never seen before or since. Assembly lines produced small arms by the thousands and factories ran 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Even before its entry into the war, America declared itself the “arsenal of democracy” and began to ramp up production considerably. Though 60% of all weapons used during the war would be made by America, other countries also proved their economies could produce at a prodigious rate, especially the Soviet Union. For characters taking part in the conflict, weapons will be a priority piece of equipment and will likely change from one adventure to the next, depending on the mission.
Since small arms have changed considerably since WWII, this book aims to provide the weapons used on all sides during the war to both players and game masters.
