From combat in the forests of France and Germany, to the black sand beaches of the Pacific Theater and Korea, each title contains roughly 100 exceptional images which will provide a wealth of visual information for gun collectors, re-enactors, modelers and historians, interested in taking a new look at some legendary weapons.
