The Lewis, or Lewis gun, was an American-designed light machine gun widely deployed by the British during the First World War. With a relatively large magazine and accurate sights, it is an effective weapon. Furthermore, unlike most German machine guns (excepting the Madsen), it can be fired from the hip, greatly assisting in trench clearing.
