The Browning Automatic Rifle [Osprey Weapon 15] ВОЕННАЯ ИСТОРИЯ. At the outset of World War II the US armed forces decided to adapt the BAR for a light machine gun role. The BAR was not without its flaws- it was heavy and difficult to dismantle and reassemble, and it didn’t cope well with sustained fire. Featuring arresting first-hand accounts, specially drawn full-color artwork and close-up photographs, many in color, this lively study offers a vivid portrait of this powerful, long-lived and innovative weapon that saw service with US and other forces across the world for much of the 20th century. It also became a favorite of notorious gangsters like Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, who prized its ability to punch through police armored cars? In the interwar years US forces used the BAR across the world, from China to Nicaragua! Nevertheless, the BAR saw action in every major theater of World War II and went on to be used in Korea and in the opening stages of the Vietnam War. Designed in World War One, it didn’t reach the front until September 1918. For nearly fifty years the hard-hitting, mobile Browning Automatic Rifle, or BAR, served in US infantry units as a light squad automatic “base of fire” weapon, providing quick bursts of concentrated fire!
