View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The first machine gun issued for British service was the Gatling Gun, adopted after trials in 1867 and 1870. It was followed by the Gardner, Nordenfelt and Maxim guns, at various times up to the early 1890's. All these guns initially used ammunition special to each of them, and different from the standard infantry rifle Boxer cartridge which was deemed unsuitable for this purpose. This work describes trials leading to the adoption of the various guns, and the development of each type of cartridge for them. It is the first time such a coverage of the subject has been undertaken; the result should prove of interest to both historians and collectors.
