By the end of WW2, the US military fielded the most advanced arsenal of small arms in history, with expertly designed pistols, rifles, carbines, SMGs, LMGs, anti-tank weapons, and flamethrowers in the hands of well trained soldiers. The M-1 Garand and M-1 Carbine specifically have been of great interest to collectors for decades, leading Bruce Canfield to write an authoritative reference book on the subject in 1998, reprinted in an improved second edition in 2010.
