A light machine gun (LMG) is a machine gun designed to be employed by an individual soldier, with or without an assistant, as an infantry support weapon. Light machine guns are often used as squad automatic weapons.

Light machine gun in Southern VictoryEdit

During the US Army's offensives in the last months of the Great War, light machine guns were introduced, designed to better keep up with the advance of the infantry. Some barrel commanders, such as Irving Morrell, also welded the weapons onto the outside of their vehicles to provide forward firepower (a US barrel during the Great War had no forward-facing machine guns).

Literary commentEdit

Unlike the various Springfield Models or the Maxim gun, this weapon is never clearly identified in the text.
