"Heading Up the Line" Two U.S. Infantry Marching in Greatcoats, 1943-45 

Delve into the harsh winter warfare of World War II with this 1/30 scale toy soldier set titled "Heading Up the Line." Featuring two U.S. Infantrymen dressed in heavy Melton Wool overcoats, this set captures the urgency and challenges faced during the historic Battle of the Bulge.

Product Features:

  • Model Number: 25263
  • Scale: 1/30, ideal for detailed military dioramas
  • Finish: Matte, emphasizing the rough conditions of winter combat
  • Set: 1 Piece, portraying two soldiers in dynamic marching poses

Historical Context: Despite the introduction of the M1943 field uniform, the double-breasted 32 oz Melton Wool overcoat, first issued in 1927, remained essential during the winter of 1944-45, particularly during the Ardennes offensive. Many U.S. troops, rushed to the front with inadequate winter gear, relied heavily on these overcoats for warmth and protection in the freezing conditions of Luxembourg and Belgium.
