Description - Military Rifles of Two World Wars by John Walter
The twentieth century was a true testing ground for tactics, conducting warfare and, inevitably, weaponry. The mainstay of all armies in the two great confrontations of that century was the military rifle. In this informative book John Walter presents information on more than sixty weapons, including semi-automatic, auto-loaders, including the Mauser, Lee-Enfield and the Tokarev. A detailed description of each rifle and its key features is supported by technical data and specially selected illustrations. Details of relevant ammunition and accessories complete the work. The variety of such weapons in the two world wars makes an accessible guide such as this extremely valuable. John Walter, the foremost authority on twentieth-century weaponry, examines the full range of the arsenal available to German, Russian, American, British and Japanese infantry and examines particular rifles within the context of the overall evolution of weapons between 1910 and 1950.
