This is by far the best rifle book I have seen yet! Ever wonder why the Americans adopted the P17? Or what was the main German rifle during World War 2? Read this book and find out!
This book is a must owner for every rifle owner and enthusiast. It covers the development of the rifle in a complete yet easy to read manner. Just be warned that the amount of information is massive, but if you ever wondered WHY a rifle design evolved a certain way, this is the book for you.
