The article on the right reported on the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps and how they went about turning enemy weaponry inside-out in order that they might gain a fuller understanding of Axis capabilities:

"Every gun, from the smallest side-arm to largest howitzer, every tank, truck or other conveyance, every airplane and item of equipment abandoned by the retreating enemy, whether it be emergency ration or new type haversack falling into Allied hands, is carefully scrutinized for tell-tale clues to [the] foe's tactics and resources. The detective work begins in foxholes and slit trenches of no-man's land, where Ordnance officers and enlisted men advance under fire with combat troops, pick up samples, snap pictures, take measurements and make estimates [and ship the itemas in question back to one of the seven ordnance testing camps]."

More about the Aberdeen Proving Ground can be read here and here.
