In regards to U.S. Soldiers being more lightly loaded in WWII; one should also consider the massive amounts of artillery, armor, and air support available to them for most of the war. It was nothing for a unit to come under fire, go to ground, and call in various forms of death from above. Which is great if your in the plains of Europe and the only other people around are wearing different uniforms than you, but kinda self-defeating if your walking through downtown Mosul.
