In Dirty Dozen movie what were silver ben like items Bronson collected from each member and put in a bag before the dozen captured Colonel Everett HQ Staff at war games?
Those devices were late-model aluminum-bodied revisions of the original #10 Delay Switch that was designed and manufactured by the British, and which would have been in wide use in that area of the European theatre during the latter part of WWII. These were often also called "pencil detonators" or "…timing pencils." The delay mechanism worked through chemical erosion of a metal wire which restrained a striker under spring pressure, and as such was not a very accurate timing device. The chemical agent (copper chloride) was contained in a glass vial inside the body tube, which was very thin. Crushing the tube released the agent which started eroding the wire. When the wire weakened to a point where the spring could break it, the striker hit the percussion cap, causing it to ignite. The end of the device that looked like a lattice cage was where one embedded the detonator into the explosive. If you slow down the DVD and zoom-in very closely you will notice what looks like a shiny metal wire near that lattice cage; this is the safety strip which blocked the striker from hitting the percussion cap, and was removed before deploying. These devices were so unreliable that they had to design-in an "inspection hole," which you can also see near the safety strip when you slow down the DVD and zoom-in. You crush the body to start the delay and then you look through the inspection hole. If you can see through it, it's (supposedly) good to go as soon as you remove the metal safety strip; if not, that means the thing already tried to detonate on you, and the only thing preventing it from doing so was that safety strip! If this is the case you were supposed to discard it and then try another one. ( Full Answer )

A weapon would be a tool to attack or defend a threat. That could be a gun, scathing repartee, or a business plan. A gun is fairly clear, as is an ax, hammer, fist, or aircraft carrier. Verbal weaponry could be an insult, a harmful rumor/lie, or abuse through neglect or criticism. Businesses o…ften will try to keep customers away from competitors by advertising a 'deal' and that is a weapon to protect their sales. There are probably more nuanced answers, but perhaps a more directed question would get better results. ( Full Answer )

There might have been some civilian hunting rifles with left handed bolts for USMC snipers in Vietnam. USA snipers used modified M14 rifles (XM21's) as sniper rifles. Other than those examples, lefty's had to shoot right handed in boot camp, and sometimes (if the DI/Drill Instructor) was feeling nic…e, might cheat and let a man qualify left handed with it. But the empty's (brass shell casings) flew into the rifleman's face when he fired left handed. All US military weapons were (they might be different for the 21st century) designed & built for the common US serviceman-right handed. Same with the old M1 steel helmet, one size fitted all; only the internal leather head straps had to be adjusted to fit his head. Same with the GI haircuts, every man got his headed shaved to the skull in boot camp-everyone was EQUAL! GI's were massed produced...all the same (as much as humanly possible). This created simplicity when managing logistics; which in turn created a superior fighting force. No Army can fight without logistics (Supplies)! ( Full Answer )

Did the government supply weapons to the soldiers during the civil war or did the soldiers bring their own weapons?
In the South, there was virtually no manufacturing capacity, so the Confederates were keen to use any weapons that could be assembled. Officers were expected to buy their own sidearms (private property that they were allowed to keep if they surrendered). But in the Confederates, even the rank-and-…file were the kind of people who would own rifles and horses, and the army was happy to accommmodate any supplies you could bring along.

Contrary to popular opinion, the most commonly encountered small arms were the Chicom (Chinese Communist) AK-47s and SKS rifles and not Soviet (Russian) built AKs and SKS weapons. Chicom small arms, trucks, and T59 versions of Soviet PT76 and T54/55 tanks far outnumbered Soviet supplied tanks. The U…SSR initially supplied the North Viet Air Force with MiG17s, then later stopped shipping them to North Vietnam and only supplied them with MiG21s. Red China picked up the slack from the Soviets (Russians) and supplied North Vietnam with their version of the MiG17 (the J5 series). The only MiG19 (a twin engine jet) in the North Vietnamese Air Force inventory was supplied to them by the Communist Chinese, the Chicom J6 (Chinese Communist version of the Russian MiG19). The USSR supplied the vast majority of radar systems and SAMs. Soviet block nations also contributed with small arms and ammunition. NVA uniforms and helmets were manufactured in North Vietnam. P4 & P6 Torpedo boats for the North Viet Navy were supplied by both the USSR & Red China. It was the P4 boats that made the attack on the USN in the Tonkin Gulf (Tonkin Gulf Incident).

Who supplied North Vietnam communists with the weapons to defeat the US who were defending South Vietnam?
Although it is true that US Generals stated that US forces were never defeated on the battlefield and this statement has been accepted by most websites (Vietnam Statistics for example); its also true that that statement is not 100% correct. Many US ground actions resulted in a retreat and/or an aban…donment of the field; See K. W. Nolan's book "INTO LAOs" the US Army's last major offensive of the Vietnam War in 1971 as one example. On the other hand the statement "weapons (used to)...defeat the US..." would also not be an accurate statement. The Chinese Communists (Chicom/Red China)/USSR/Warsaw Pact nations all supplied small arms (AK47s, etc.) and equipage to North Vietnam. The USSR supplied PT76 & T-54 tanks, MiG17 & MiG21s, plus SAMs and associated radar sets. Red China supplied MiG19s (their Chicom J6 versions) and MiG17s (Chicom J5 versions), as well as their Chicom T63 & T59 tanks (Chicom versions of the PT76 & T54 tanks). Both nations also supplied the North Viet Navy with P4 torpedo boats which clashed with the US destroyer USS Maddox in the Tonkin Gulf in '64. By far the most equipment...AKs, SKS, machine guns, trucks, mortars, etc. encountered by the allies in RVN (Republic of South Vietnam) were Chicom. ( Full Answer )

Did Colonel Shaw really get into a quarrel with the quartermaster over supplies and specifically shoes for the 54th?
The event you describe is from the movie " Glory " that tells the story of the all-black 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment . This movie is based upon facts but many of the conversations were probably written by the film writers. This event probably did take place as there have been documents tha…t show there was resistance to providing uniforms and guns to the black soldiers. There are a couple of books about Colonel Shaw that may give more detail on his life. But I don't think Colonel Shaw recorded this conversation. ( Full Answer )

Why did general Benjamin Butler declare enslaved African American refugees to be contraband or captured war supplies?
Declaring slaves who had run away into the position of the Union Army to be "contraband" allowed the Union Army to "confiscate" them. This meant that the Union Army did not have to turn the runaways over to their owners, when the owners appeared wanting their slaves back. This denied the labor of th…e slaves to the south, and also satisfied the feelings of many in the Union Army, who did not like the idea of forcing slaves who had escaped back into servitude. So, for some months runaways were called "contrabands". This was before the Emancipation Proclamation, which did not take effect until January 1, 1863, by which time the war had been going on for more than nineteen months. Union leaders had to steer clear of the mention of "emancipation", of freeing the slaves, for the first part of the war. Very early on the Union commander in Missouri, John C. Fremont, had issued his own "emancipation" without consulting President Lincoln first, or even warning anyone in Washington DC what he intended to do. Fremont was a "political general", one of a large number of men (like Ben Butler) who were appointed as generals in the army in the early days not because they were great soldiers, but because of their political clout and connections, so Fremont should have known better. (Fremont did at least have some military experience, unlike almost all the other political generals - he had become famous as "The Pathfinder" following publication of his book written about his explorations of the west as the commander of a military expedition before the war). Fremont had been the first Republican to run for President, but he lost in 1856. Lincoln was the first Republican elected. Lincoln forced Fremont to withdraw his proclamation of "emancipation" in those early days in Missouri. The reason for this was Lincoln was trying to woo the border states - states which had slavery, but had not seceded - yet, anyway - and joined the Confederacy. Lincoln had said he hoped to have God on his side, but he HAD to have Kentucky. So all talk of "emancipation" had to be stifled at first, to avoid alarming the politically powerful large slave-holders in the border states (Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware) and to not give them the issue of slavery over which to decide they must cast their lot with the south, or be bankrupted.

Why did union Benjamin butler declare enslaved African American refugees to be contraband or capture war supplies?
The law allowed for enemy property to be confiscated. Since the South considered slaves chattels (personal property), Butler took advantage of the loophole to free the slaves in Southern territory under Union control.
Did North Vietnam Mongolia Laos and Cambodia offer supplies weapons aid and assistance to the communist forces fighting in the Korean War?
