Now in Muskegon, Mich. as a museum ship, U.S.S. LST 393 once served as a specialized landing ship for the United States Navy, delivering thousands of troops and vehicles from the coast of Sicily to the shores of Normandy during D-day.
The most famous rifle of D-Day—or at least the most memorable rifle of “The Longest Day”—wasn’t actually there. Lord Lovat did carry his Mannlicher-Schoenauer carbine in combat, however, and we can learn a lot about British and American guns used during World War II from his memoirs.
The National Museum of the United States Army holds nearly 1,400 artifacts that tell the story of the fighting men and women of America through the ages.
We all know about the M1 Garand and the Thompson submachine gun, but troops in Normandy used much more. See these 12 forgotten guns of the D-Day landings.
