Description

Part of the Weapons of War series, Small Arms 1870-1950 brings together the most important handheld guns of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in a single volume. The book includes some of the best-known weapons of the era, such as the Luger pistol, Mosin-Nagant rifle, Thompson M1928 submachine gun, Sten Gun, and Browning M2HB heavy machine gun. Small Arms 1870-1950 features 150 entries of the most important guns from history.

Weapons design was revolutionised in the late nineteenth century with the development of the magazine loading system. Without doubt, the generation of firearms designers that altered, improved and generally revised the rifles of the years prior to World War I were influenced by a legion of innovators and designers who had gone before them. Every weapon in Weapons of War Small Arms 1870-1950 is illustrated with an accurate color artwork and each entry includes a specifications table with essential information such as weight, length, caliber and range. The concise text provides a summary of the design, development, service history, and performance of each weapon. Gun enthusiasts and history buffs alike will be blown away by this enlightening, thorough look inside the small arms of 1870- 1950.
