Government ended with the Armistice, Thompson was undaunted and started promoting his new weapon as a police gun. Thompson's new gun was a delayed blowback type feeding from a characteristic drum magazine with an outline which became well known, a finned barrel, two pistol grips and a short butt. Thompson coined the term "submachine gun" but the press needed a term to catch the public fancy, and thus, the term "Tommy Gun" came into being. Auto-Ordnance actually registered "Tommy Gun" with the Trade Mark division of the Patent Office and this was even stamped on some guns. It was adopted by the U.S. Marines even though it received highly unfavorable publicity in criminal hands.
As the war drew on, other weapons such as gas and tanks were used by the Germans for the first time at the First Battle of Ypres in 1915, and became a major tool of warfare on the Western Front. Tanks were used by the British for the first time at the Battle of the Somme in 1916 to little effect, but following technological innovation were crucial tot e success of the Allied counter offensive in 1918. The stalemate was eventually broken by a shift in tactics and strategies. Unlike preceding campaigns, the Ludendorff offensive was able to retain the element of surprise by not employing pre-emptive artillery barrage. This, coupled with the use of highly trained storm troopers meant that the Germans were able to make significant gains in
A disease that may result in gangrene even amputation… But I’m “ok” here, never cheated death. They call me “The Swift Sniper”. I’ve killed those body snatchers. About 23 now? As I wrote to you before about the Germans and there new invention, the poison gas… Our scientists have found a solution.
The M16 machine gun was introduced as well and proved to be useful in its firepower of almost 1,000 rounds per minute, durability through harsh weather conditions and a light weight frame. The introduction of mines aided in sealing perimeters from enemies for night encampments while walkie-talkies enabled troops to maintain conversation-like contact while standing many yards away from one another. However, the invention of nuclear missiles changed the worlds approach to war forever. At this day in age, the advancements made in military technology are far beyond the minds of any regular person. The US military now has in its possession, nuclear missiles able to explode countries to bits and pieces.
All of these experiments were done with his assistant, Dr. Richtofen. Without Maxis, Richtofen and Schuster would complete the first successful teleportation with a walnut using a very small amount of 115. When Maxis found out about this, he criticized Richtofen for not working on his project and that teleporting a walnut wasn't a big deal. Maxis then told Richtofen that he was going to make a deal with the Nazi party for money and equipment in exchange for weapons. These new weapons Group 935 created were also powered by 115.
I personally believe in the latter. Some would say that, due to the fact that Russell was Britain’s first “real” war reporter, he was able to be brutally honest about the war for a certain period of time, leading up to November 25th 1954, when he was instructed by the editor of the times, John Delane, to concentrate an assault upon Lord Raglan. Aside from this, however, Russell’s brutally honest reports helped to expose the failures of the war, and as a result, public opinions towards the war hit a new low. Due to these reports, which even reached Queen Victoria, photographer, Fenton, was sent to the Crimea in order to portray the war in contrast to the harsh criticisms within Russell’s articles. Due to this, I do not believe that any of Fenton’s pictures can be used as an accurate reportage of the Crimean war, although he did have a good reputation as a photographer, even photographing Queen Victoria and her family at times.
B. Technology and the Trenches Much of nineteenth-century warfare had been predicated on speed and maneuverability, but the First World War on the western front almost immediately was limited to the trenches that ran from the English Channel to the Swiss border. Machine guns, poison gas, and heavy artillery made short work of cavalry and massive frontal assaults by the infantry. As traditional methods of warfare failed, leaders turned to new technology to break the deadlock—tanks,
Since 1945, many historians have questioned General Motors’ participation to the Nazi regime’s war effort. In fact, recent documentation shows that General Motors (GM) and Opel were “eager, willing and indispensable cogs in the Third Reich’s rearmament juggernaut,” and consequently, their path to World War Two. This study by Henry Ashby Turner, which he began in 1999 and was published in 2005, attempts to put these uncertainties to rest. The account of GMs business in the Third Reich from 1933 until America’s entrance to the war in 1941 is based on unrestricted access to GM’s internal records and documents. Although claims have been made about the validity of all of Turner’s findings, the study is very successful in capturing the historiographical
Discovery of Bakelite Leo H. Baekeland's Discovery Of Bakelite Paula Buenaventura Ronald Reagan Doral High School Discovery Of Bakelite 2 Bakelite was one of the first artificial plastics discovered. Chemist, Leo Baekeland dveloped this plastic in 1907 as he set out to find the replacement of shellac; lac resin melted into thin flakes for making varnish. Shellac at the time was a natural and therefore an expensive product.There would be a wide market for any reasonably priced substitute. Baekeland’s research scheme, begun in 1905, focused on finding a solvent that could dissolve the resinou. Finding a substitute for shellac wasnt such an easy task, it took try after try to figure it out.
Running head: CONDUCTING PSYCHOLOGICAL AUTOPSIES Conducting Psychological Autopsies: An Annotated Bibliography Anthony S. Ragusea Richard W. Sears Wright State University Conducting Psychological Autopsies: An Annotated Bibliography Psychological autopsies are a relatively recent phenomenon. Although authors disagree as to when the first autopsy was done, estimates do not go back earlier than the 1950’s. It was not until the late 1960’s with Edwin Shneidman’s work on the subject at the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Center did the practice become more recognized and popular. Proponents believe autopsies are of critical importance when determining the cause of an equivocal death (one where
