Chester William Nimitz - Commander-In-Chief, United States Pacific Fleet

Chester William Nimitz - Commander-In-Chief, United States Pacific Fleet
One of American’s greatest commanders of WW2, or indeed any of the wars and conflicts the U.S. has fought in during its history. Chester William Nimitz was born in Fredericksburg Texas in 1885 and graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1905. When America entered WW2 in December 1941 he was promoted to Commander In Chief, Pacific Fleet with the rank of admiral. Nimitz controlled the ‘Pacific Ocean Areas’ while General Douglas MacArthur took over the land campaign. Admiral Nimitz was also present at the Japanese surrender on board the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay on September 2, 1945. Our figure shows Admiral Nimitz dressed in ‘Khakis’, the everyday wear of U.S. Navy officers in the Pacific Theatre of Operations during WW2.

Eisenhower wearing IKE - D-DAY IKE - General Dwight D. Eisenhower
Here, the General is seen wearing the short, battledress-dress style jacket (modelled on the original British one) that he had specially tailored for himself in London when he took up his European command in 1943. In this version his “IKE” jacket, as it came to be known, is tailored in the same chocolate brown material as the regular U.S. Army officers’ issue uniform of the period. When this colour of jacket was worn it was usually teamed with the “pink”( more beige khaki actually) trousers of the standard officers’ uniform. - See more at: http://www.kingandcountry.com/eisenhower-wearing-p-10149.html#sthash.5Fz7fWD9.dpuf

General Omar Bradley
This is the third “Bradley” figure K&C has produced and, I believe, the best one yet!

As commander of the US First Army he won the respect and admiration of his soldiers as well as the nickname ... “The GI’s General” He had a long and distinguished military career eventually becoming Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and General of the Army. He died in 1981.

"Gang of Heroes"

"Gang of Heroes"
In every army, in every war there are always some individuals who are on the lookout for ways to enrich themselves by one way...or another. The U.S. Army was no exception! Some soldiers helped themselves to wine, women and song...Others looted valuable jewelry, paintings, ornaments, silverware – virtually anything they could lay their mitts on. A few had even bigger ambitions...they went after gold bullion! Four GI’s have an appointment with a bank manager somewhere behind German lines and intend to make a rather large withdrawal...

"Searching For Pvt. Ryan" Set #1

"Searching For Pvt. Ryan" Set #1
“SAVING PRIVATE RYAN” is a very special war drama film for many of us history movie buffs and especially so for myself and K&C. Back in 1997, through a Hollywood friend and fellow collector, I heard about a big new D.Day movie that was already being filmed in Britain and Ireland by none other than Steven Spielberg. At the time all we knew was that it featured American paratroopers and U.S. Rangers and was centered around Normandy and Omaha Beach. And so, K&C produced some of its very first American D.Day soldiers which began our entire D.Day range which continues to this day. Journey forward quite a few years to when we met Capt. Dale Dye U.S.M.C. ret’d., the military advisor on ‘Ryan’ and countless other great war movies and discussions about doing a special ‘tribute’ to a fantastic movie and the real ‘heroes of D.DAY’. This 4-figure set (the first of 2) features the perilous journey through the fields and bocage of German-occupied Normandy to try and find PFC James Ryan, 101st Airbor
