Description

The English language is liberally populated with idioms, similes and metaphors associated with firearms and conflict going back to the 14th Century. Today we use descriptive conversational terminology that can be directly attributed to weapons and the mechanics of war and their application, perhaps not always realising what we are actually referring to. This guide from former Royal Marine, Andrew Rigsby, explains all.
