After a long and serious think about the whole subject... i believe the one item that has done more for the effort of war an all is...the military P-38 can opener.

When every thing came in a can, it was the P-38 that led the way. It also was a screwdriver (plain and phillips, if you please), knife, emergency fish hook, unit reconition symbol, finger nail cleaner, emergency thedolite, emergency electrical fuse and much much more.

I pay homage to the 1 cent wonder...the personal military can opener.

I believe that M-1 Grande was the greatest of all. During WWII almost every country had standard infantry rifles that were bolt action, not America. We had the Newly develuoped Semi-Automatic M-1. We had semi-auto weapons and we had 8 round clips. I believe we won WWII over Geremany because of our supeior weapons.

While the garand was an amazing weapon, I've heard (esp. on this forum) that it jammed often due to the ability for dirt to lodge itself in the bandolier. I do however, agree that we won the war because of our superior weapons.
