From the Publisher"In A History of the Word in 100 Weapons, author and military historian Chris McNab leads readers on a thrilling (albeit gut-wrenching) trail up the Mountain of Warfare... Facets of long-unused forging methods are brought back to life in a way that could even distract middle-schoolers away from their smartphones, for each weapon’s tale is related much in the fashion of sitting at one’s grandfather’s knee, listening to dark tales of the trenches (sans embellishment)."
—Meredith Greene, San Francisco Book Review
