World War II Military Items - United States

The United States entrance into World War II was one of many signs that the Axis powers would soon be defeated. U.S. World War II memorabilia include advanced firearms like the M1 Garland.

The United States was also one of the heaviest propaganda-producing countries in the war. There exist posters that inspired fighting men to fight, families to invest in war bonds, and everyone back home to ration. World War II items give a hands on experience of what soldiers and civilians saw, felt, and interacted with during a tragic time in history.


Quick Facts

  • The Civilian Marksmanship program sold M1911 automatic pistols through their program, the same guns used in World War II
  • World War II saw a massive move towards women serving in the military, with a total of 350,000 serving in three branches with their own unique uniforms
  • One of the most famous propaganda posters involved a character known as Rosie the Riveter, who was based on a war worker named Naomi
