A must have for any World War 2 video game, the M1 Garand is a huge part of military history, and the arsenal of pop culture weapons. It was a tool that helped the allies fight in the Second World War, and has since been seen in plenty of games, from Call of Duty and Battlefield through to Fallout: New Vegas. But what about the rest of the Garand’s history, the myths behind it, and its impact it has had on gaming over 80 years after it’s invention?
In this episode of Loadout, Dave Jewitt visits the Royal Armouries to talk to Keeper of Firearms & Artillery Jonathan Ferguson about the history and impact of one of WW2’s most iconic weapons, the M1 Garand.
