In World War II, standard infantry still carried bolt-action rifles. Sub-machine guns were rare and generally reserved for officers and special forces. But in the Hollywood version of the war, EVERYONE gets a sub-machine gun. The Allies carry Thompsons or M3 "grease guns", and the Germans almost always carry MP-40s.
