This encyclopedia of firearms is both an authoritative reference
work and a stunning visual directory, explaining the development of
arms through the centuries. The chronological survey begins with
gunpowder and the first crude 14th-century hand cannons, and
continues through handguns and the development of machine and
submachine guns. Each gun's features are listed, as are the
military, political and technological contexts in which the gun was
developed. A full list of manufacturers and a glossary complete
this easy-to-use encyclopedia. The book is essential reading for
anyone interested in gun manufacture and conflicts of war.
