Review:

Handsome and large work of great quality dealing with every aspect of naval firearms, pyrotechnics and portable artillery... -- Classic Arms And Militaria, February, 1994

Outstanding drawings...accuracy of the work is attested to by the names of people recognized in the Acknowledgements. -- The Gun Report, 1994

Over 200 illustrations; line drawings by the author and clear, photographic plates (16 in color) have been included! -- Arms Collecting, November, 1993

The text...hundreds of illustrations...excellent. If a more complete and interesting coverage exists, we are not aware of it. -- American Rifleman, January, 1994
