Details (Description): The French Army of the Great War went through numerous changes in military style, leadership and composition. The French Infantryman naively began the war brilliantly decked out in a dark blue great coat and glorious red pantaloons. When the last shots were fired, four years later, his garments had changed to a muddled Horizon Blue, but his character shone with an elan that was unmatched. While the armies of the rest of the world fought to contain a common foe, the French 'Poilu,' as the common soldier was called, fought for the soil of his own country. He knew the names and places of the towns and forests he fought in, and paid dearly to win back every yard. Despite the hell of trench warfare, the callousness and incompetence of some of its leaders, mutinies and the suffering that would seem to know no limits, the French 'Poilu' fought with machine gun, rifle, grenade and bayonet until they were victorious. The French Rifleman stands 12 inches tall and comes with: Adrian Helmet Single Breasted Great Coat Infantry Tunic Breeches with Infantry Stripe Boots with Puttees Leather Y Strap and Waist Belt Cartridge Boxes Haversacks Bayonet Frog and Scabbard 2-Liter Canteen M-2 Gas Mask and Bag Large Wire Cutters 1886 Epee Bayonet 1907 Berthier Rifle.
