A Brief History Although World War I (1914-1918) was pretty much rudimentary in terms of weapons and weaponry, so to say, you would still expect its deadliest weapon to be a firearm – for example, a sniper rifle or even a pistol; however, a couple of web searches will show you that, among the Gewehr and the Bergmann, you can also find a primitive weapon – namely the German Flechette. It is also known as the Aerial Dart. Believe it or not, the Flechette was one of the deadliest weapons that a nation could use back in 1915-1916. In fact,…

A Brief History Today, the Bermuda Triangle is a popular, yet questionable area. It has been known for decades, after the disappearance of multiple people and ships over the years. Even nowadays, there are still mysteries surrounding the area. But what if such a mystery would happen to you? What if you order something, let us say a gun from across the ocean, and the ship transporting it travels across the Bermuda Triangle and gets lost. After all, you would not suspect that your new BBTac M62 will be the one to get lost in the area, of all things.…

A Brief History From October 2, 1941 to January 7, 1942, the Battle of Moscow was fought on the Eastern Front of World War II (WWII).  The Battle for Moscow is known as the one in which Hitler’s military forces were stopped.

A Brief History August 12, 1915 marks the date of a story – which is not actually just a simple story – which tells of the vanishing of a group of British soldiers during the now infamous Gallipoli campaign, World War One.  Most say that the 5th Norfolk Battalion vanished into thin air. Other versions of this legend say that the soldiers actually walked into thick mist and were then swallowed up, without a single trace.  Ever since the men of Sandringham have vanished, theories have been created, as well as a lot of controversies. Naturally, all of those discussing…

A Brief History On August 6, 1945, near end of World War II, a modified Boeing B-29 Superfortress heavy bomber dropped a uranium gun-type (“Little Boy”) bomb on Hiroshima.  Three days later, on August 9, a plutonium implosion (“Fat Man”) bomb was dropped by another B-29 on Nagasaki. The bombs immediately devastated their targets and, over the next two to four months, the acute effects of the atomic bombings killed 90,000–146,000 people in Hiroshima and 39,000–80,000 people in Nagasaki.  World War II was one of the most deadly wars in history.  Over 15,000,000 people were killed in combat. 25,000,000 more…
