Eddie Soto Period 3 5/22/11 The Tommy gun The Tommy gun was invented by a guy named John Taliaferro Thompson. Upon commissioning, he entered the army in the Artillery, later transferring to the Ordnance Department in 1890. During the Spanish-American War he distinguished himself when he directed the supply of munitions at a time of near chaos in the Army's ordnance. The Thompson was involved in the testing and adoption of the Springfield rifle. He became famous for tests he conducted that resulted in adoption of the AS caliber as the official U.S. Army handgun.
He had many accomplishments such as creating the new flag of Canada, and the Canada Pension plan for old- age seniors just to name a few. Pearson was an intelligent liberal leader for Canada and with that; the liberal party is in dominance right now. He made numerous amounts of good changes and influenced the Canada in the right direction to give us what we have
Who is “The Great One?” For many years, Canada’s own, Wayne Gretzky, has been considered the greatest player to ever play the fast paced game of hockey. Gretzky has made his name familiar in every National Hockey League (NHL) record book during his illustrious twenty one year career. Years of NHL play have come and gone and his name still sits triumphant amongst many. However, tables have been turning the last few years as Sydney Crosby, another young Canadian player, has stepped into the spotlight and taken the professional league by storm. Records have been set by both of these talented phenomenons, but who in the end will take the title of “The Great One,” young active Sydney Crosby or the retired hockey hero Wayne Gretzky?
It is undeniable that Jack Layton became a well respected political leader, as well as beloved Canadian figure. Two days before his death, Jack Layton wrote a personal letter addressed to all Canadians. The letter was simple and yet eloquently written and contained what is perceived as Layton’s final thoughts, final arguments, and final hopes. The passing of Jack Layton along with his letter to Canadians created an outpour of emotions and reactions from Canadians - ranging mostly from grief to inspiration being pulled from Jack’s life, career, and final statement to Canadians. For this assignment I will analyse Jack Layton’s final letter to Canadians, studying the themes and arguments it contains to try and figure out why it took the discourse it did, becoming an important moment in Canada’s recent history.
They protected supplies ships in the Battle of the Atlantic. Canadians tested invasion methods during the Battle of Dieppe. Finally Canadians stormed the shores of Juno beach on one of the most important days of battle ever, D-day. The three most important battles that helped Canada win the war were the Battle of the Atlantic, the Battle of Dieppe, and finally D-Day. Although the battle of Britain could also be considered one of Canada’s most important battles since a lot of Canadian fighter pilots fought and helped take control of the air because it was a joint effort and not strictly a Canadian force this battle was not included The Battle of the Atlantic was one of the most important battles for Canada because it controlled all the supplies that were heading to the allies.
The Canadians had to carefully plan, and strategize for the battle of Vimy Ridge. They spent months for preparation, and countless hours towards building tunnels below the battlefield, planning elaborate and new ways to attack and overcome the Germans, and training their men. Some soldiers were trained for weeks to specialize in jobs such as machine gunners, rifle-men and grenade throwers. Vimy Ridge seemed nearly impossible to capture because of how well it was fortified, but Canada learned from past mistakes others had made trying to capture the Ridge, and came up with new ideas. Major-General Arthur Currie told the Canadian Corps to take their time in training the Canadian soldiers; there was no need to rush everything, and it wouldn’t benefit us.
Once king, he implemented a regime that included extensive training programs, strong chains of command, and permanent units. He established supply lines, bases of operation, and adopted separate infantry, artillery, and cavalry units in order to redefine battle formations. He was the first to further divide these units into squadrons, then brigades, and so on ensuring a system of cooperation within the whole of the army than was unlike any army elsewhere. He used the newest and best weapons improving musketry. He easily became the “father of modern warfare”.
Please pass my love to George and Harry. I am in Northern France on the Vimy Ridge. This is the first time that all the divisions of our Canadian corps are fighting together against the Germans. We are on the highest point on the ridge; this is an advantage for us because we can clearly see our enemy across the horizon without being slaughtered. The living conditions are very brutal here.
Hailed as the Father of the U.S. Armored Forces, General Adna R. Chaffee Jr. was one of the most influential military leaders during the interwar war period. Although a Cavalry officer, he envisioned an independent fast striking mechanized/armored force, which became the modern day US Armor branch. Chaffee held key positions, which were influential in the development of mechanized/armored vehicles and doctrine. His leadership, expertise in organizational maneuvers, and the command of doctrine allowed him to highlight armor’s potential in two highly visible mechanized maneuvers. Additionally, Chaffee clearly articulated his mechanized/armored vision to the interwar period military leaders and to a Congressional audience to further advance the armor inertia.
The ECG signal passed through instrumentation amplification and filtration stages is continuously monitored by the microprocessor. In the event of the death of the soldier, the microprocessor detects the ECG flatline and the location of the dead soldier tracked by the GPS module is then communicated to the military base station by the use of GSM. This information can be used to devise war strategies as to how many more soldiers (and where) should be deployed to replace the martyrs. I. Introduction Keywords: Electrocardiogram (ECG), Global System for Mobile (GSM), Global Positioning System (GPS), Soldier India ranks amongst the top 3 with respect to the largest armed forces in the world with around 1,129,900 active personnel and 960,000 reserve personnel.
