Review:

"Battle accounts from a variety of wars and fronts to describe the difficulties of fighting both in front of and behind such weapons. . . . The result is an illuminating view of the history of modern warfare." -- Midwest Book Review

"Explores the ways the machine gun has shaped modern warfare." -- Stars and Stripes

In The Grim Reaper: Machine Guns and Machine-Gunners in Action the invention of the machine gun is described and the important models of different nations are examined, along with battle accounts from a variety of wars and fronts to describe the difficulties of fighting both in front of and behind such weapons. Roger Ford's The Grim Reaper is an account of this difficult subject in a manner that conveys the human experience foremost and beyond the simple technical facts of the weapons themselves. The result is an illuminating view of the history of modern warfare. No military studies reference book collection can be considered complete without The Grim Reaper. -- Midwest Book Review
