Now I used to think this applied ONLY to Canada but it would seem Americans knew the value of a good and measured drink as well!

Yeah, C2H5OH did help build the Unites States of Amnesia

up to and including WW-2, hardly any army would have marched without C2H5OH
[booze] The most potent weapon of war!

I too am a history buff and have learned some things from this video. I'm inclined to go along with Wolf. I know the North Vietnamese were shot up with opiates before going into battle. Anything that alters the mind can cause a person to do things they would not normally do.

C'mon for cripes sakes! This is really interesting history - facts - in fact I found it really tongue in cheek and amusing!
