Hailed by many historians and researchers as "a book that needed to be written". The bookshelves are flooded with volumes and volumes of material on Billy the Kid, but this unique book approaches the Lincoln County War from an entirely new perspective. Beginning with the Horrell War of 1873 and concluding with Billy's death at the hands of Pat Garrett on 14 July 1881 at Fort Sumner, New Mexico you will learn exactly what guns were available, and used, by the various combatants. Cliff Caldwell's "Guns of the Lincoln County War" is intended to aid Billy the Kid and Lincoln County War enthusiasts in understanding and interpretation the weapons that were available, and used, at the time. The book is written in such a way that the reader who is completely unfamiliar with firearms can still come away with a good understanding of the arms of the period and who might have used them. It contains a number of photographs of period firearms as well as a helpful appendix section.
