So wikipedia defines it as a short compact... show me a link to any US Army pub that calls it an assault rifle if you can.
Here you go:

By the way, I never said the Army calls the M4 an assault rifle. I said the M4 fit the Army's definition of assault rifle.

The STG 44 was a Machine Pistol or submachine gun that fired a 7.92x33 kurz aka Pistolenpatrone M43 (pistol cartridge model 1943)
The STG 44 is widely considered to be the worlds first assault rifle. I don't think I need to post any links for this one, it's pretty well known and easy to research.
