Overview

The 19th century was the century of the bayonet, and this book is probably the most complete guide to the correct use of the weapon as it was fixed to the newly introduced British magazine rifle in 1890. Alfred Hutton, whose other works include the aptly titled 'Cold Steel' gives an expert guide to offensive and defensive bayonet lunges, parries and positions, together with glossaries of English, French and Italian terms used in bayonet fencing. Profusely illustrated, this is surely the definitive guide to a weapon which has stubbornly retained its place in the military armoury from its introduction in the 18th century right up till today.This offer expires 21 December 2007
