The History of the M1 Garand
It’s been called the “Greatest Battle Implement ever devised” by a man who is, arguably, the greatest General in the history of the United States armed forces, General George S. Patton. If you’ve never had the privilege of shooting one, you’re really missing out. I recently acquired one of my own, a 1943 Springfield Armory M1C. It quickly became the most prized possession in my gun safe.
