The AR15 civilian rifle is often targeted by anti-gun people as an “assault weapon” but during the Vietnam war its military equivalent, the M16, was often hated by grunts in the field because of its often balky action. It was a far cry from the AK47s used by the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese troops. The Russian-designed AK47 and its variants fired a .30 caliber round and rarely if ever malfunctioned — even if covered with dirt, water and slime.
To help solve the problem with the new rifle, the U.S. Army under Chief of Staff Gen. William Westmoreland in 1969 brought comic book immortal Will Eisner (see the wikipedia entry on this genius of comics and graphic novels: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Will_Eisner) back to the drawing board to repeat the success he had as a WWII veteran who used comic book techniques in producing an instruction manual that works and is fun to use.
