Even in your video, it said if it wasnt for WWI the Lee-Enfeild would of been dropped in favor of the Mauser derived P14 and woulda been a little known footnote in history...

Most of my relatives, father in law and others served in WWII in combat; Europe, North Africa and Iwo Jima, Okinawa and Philippines. The M1 Garand and M1 carbine were their choice of arms. Personally, I think all the major players in WWII had some good firearms. I have many of them and love them all including the Arisaka 99 and the Mosin Nagant and mod 44.
