US platoons follow the French organisation and number twice the size of both their battle worn British allies and the enemy. Split into half platoons, their light machine-gun squads with either Lewis or Chauchat machine-guns keep the enemies’ heads down while the rifle squads close in. If they encounter any enemy machinegun nests they deploy their Vivien and Bessières (VB) rifle grenades to quickly knock them out.
