1941-42

Billows of mist are shown pouring from the ten-lipped mouth of the U.S. Army's new M-1 smoke generator to cover a whole countryside like fog.

A battery of the devices, the principle of which was worked out by Dr. Irving Langmuir and Vincent Schaefer of the General Electric Research Laboratory, can blot out an entire area.

They have already seen service in North Africa.
