Kevin Brant takes a look at a recently released figure from Manta Figurines which is a great looking U.S. Infantry Section/Platoon Leader figure from the Normandy invasion.

Just to pick a nit and its tough to tell from the photos but if this figure is a Platoon Leader then he should be a Lieutenant, therefore no rank on the arms. Also a Division patch should only be worn on one sleeve.

Actually there was a little-known third US beach. The invasion barges made a wrong turn at Albaquerque and landed at Pizmo Beach. (Or was that Bugs Bunny?)
