weapon,knife, canteen,then entrenching tool. I figure that if it came down to a long hand to hand fight my e-tool wouldnt be the first thing i grab. I bet i'd be damn thirsty too and would probably need a drink if there was a slight lull in the fighting. Most guys that run out of ammo do so after a long fighting situation in which they'd be very very thirsty. a shovel would work as a last last ditch weapon and could be used almost like a club if needed. also i'd try to make my fortification as good as i could if i were engaged in a long fight. thats just my personal preference so please dont flame me for it.

I personally think the most important equipment is in this order:
A loaded Weapon (Umm… yeah no need to explain) Bayonet (Use as a weapon) Canteen (Everyone needs water! It is vital) Entrenching tool (As a weapon or to use for fortification) Helmet (Can use to gather water or protect your head, you can also use it to cook stuff in) Cloths (no need to explain) Dry socks (Can be important to prevent disease) Boots (no need to explain)

I would have to say my man hood but on a more serious note. 1) My Comerades 2) Correct clothing for weather 3) Canteen/ rations 4)weapon ( saying from Full Metal Jacket says it prefectly ) 5) Knife 6) all other gear
"I'm a dog chasing cars. I don't have plans. I just do things. I'm not a schemer. "
The greatest casualty producer (Not neccessarily deaths) in WW2 for all armieswas disease followed by exposure followed by artillery and finally bullets and blunt force or penetration wounds produced by enemy blades. For that reason I would say (Personal hygene gear and warm clothing are the most significant) An entrenching tool so I can dig deep and dig well, followed by my rifle and ammunition and finally my knife (bayonet)
Team work and good soldiering skills contribute to my success with all these so training and teamwork are the most important items. That's my assesment for the German Army and frankly all armies.

aj czarkowski: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
