The longer weapons of the foot-soldier and the sportsman are the principal subjects of this wide-ranging and fascinating study, compiled by Frederick Wilkinson. Today's infantrymen are armed with light weight, rapid and deadly arms. The sportsman now carries a fine-tuned modern weapon too. The great upsurge in technological power has been matched by a wave of enthusiasm for firearms of every period. The authors of this superbly illustrated and photographed account review the early days of the musket and shotgun, and the quest for long range accuracy that culminated in the first rifles. From repeating weapons, to muskets, to assault rifles and submachine guns, all are described and placed in context with the aid of more than 245 illustrations, 70 in color.
