This comprehensive, fully illustrated reference volume covers the evolution of small arms from primitive spears to portable rocket launchers.
The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Small Arms details more than 1,000 weapons, complete with full-color photographs. Featuring arms from around the world and across history, this stunning guide highlights the intricacies that make each variety unique, tying in historical anecdotes as well as the history of certain brands.
Revealing fascinating insights and historical episodes—such as the inspiration for Samuel L. Colt’s revolvers, or the lozenge-case gun used by Italian spies during World War II—this is an ideal resource for historians as well as fire arms enthusiasts. The volume is lushly illustrated  with detailed photographs, many of which are published here for the first time.
