I have it for my 8th grade history class and it is passed around almost every day. It offers just the right overview and pictures to provide my students with reinforcement to the topics we have covered this year and last year. They especially like learning about the Civil War weapons that we are currently studying.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

An easy-to-use book with a wide variety of weapons, including some that you've never heard of (in no other book will you find the phrase, 'deadly fly-whisk'). While I would have preferred to see more of the older weapons instead of a plethora of guns, I would still recommend it to anyone doing research on such topics.Was this review helpful?
