When did the Allied Armies begin to use flamethrowers?
Crude (by today's standards) portable flamethrowers were used extensively in WW I, first by Germany, then Britain (1917). But the modern man portable types were first used in WW II by Americans in the 1942 Pacific theater, while British and French deployed them in Europe as early as 1939. Americans on Omaha Beach (at the Normandy invasion) also had two man teams to deploy flamethrowers in June 1944. And of course, they were used extensively in the deep jungle terrain in Viet Nam
