The U.S. Army teamed up with cartoonist and graphic artist Will Eisner to produce teaching tools for U.S. soldiers in a medium that they could easily understand. The M16A1 Rifle: Operation and Preventive Maintenance, first printed in 1969, features a female narrator who instructs GIs on the proper care of their AR-15 (military name M16A1) rifles firearms notorious for jamming and malfunctioning. More than a simple manual and step-by-step guide, this unconventional yet important military document tried to appeal to soldiers with suggestive chapter titles such as, How to Strip Your Baby, What to Do in a Jam, Sweet 16, and All the Way with Négligé. A copy of the thirty-two-page booklet was issued to nearly every soldier serving in Vietnam. 5 1/2 X 7 1/2, hardcover, illus, 64pp.
