In 1938 the US Chief of Infantry requested that the Ordnance Department develop a carbine to be used by service and support troops, artillerymen, machine-gun crews, tankers, mortar crews and other troops not needing the power of the M1 Garand rifle. The development of this new weapon was given an added impetus by Germany's successful use of airborne and glider troops early on in World War II. This caused a fear amongst US officers that troops normally considered 'behind the lines' personnel might have to fight elite German troops and would therefore require a more effective weapon than their standard pistols. The resulting M1 Carbine was a not a shortened version of the standard service rifle but instead a brand-new design chambering a new cartridge. Eventually numerous manufacturers would combine to produce over six million M1 Carbines before the end of the war. This book charts the complete story of the weapon, from its design, to its operational history and its impact upon warfare.

Hatcher's Book of the Garand is the definitive chronicle of the rifle General George S. Patton called “the greatest battle implement ever devised.” Major General Julian S. Hatcher follows the evolution of the M1 Garand from the first semiautomatic hunting rifles to the devastating U.S. infantry weapon of WWII. It's a battle royal of weapons design, with dozens of unforeseen problems sending inventors back to the drawing board and a scandal-hungry media waiting to discredit the guns favored by the military. Garand's fierce competition includes such legendary companies and inventors as Winchester, Colt, Johnson, Thompson, and the author himself. Hatcher follows the rigorous target and field tests that each gun underwent, leading to numerous revisions and the eventual adoption of Garand's rugged rifle. It is a difficult struggle lasting over a decade and a half, and a vital and unsung part of the war effort.In addition to the story of the Garand, Hatcher offers detailed explanations for cleaning, repairing, and firing this historic rifle. The Book of the Garand is an indispensable part of any gun enthusiast's library.
