From the invention of gunpowder more than 1,000 years ago in China to the latest Metal Storm firing system with electronic ignition, The Great Book of Guns presents a historical approach to the development of firearms and their place in world events. In chapters on Pistols and Revolvers, Rifles and Shotguns, Submachine Guns, and Heavy Machine Guns, individual weapons are featured in chronological order. Each entry is superbly illustrated with color photography and has detailed specifications and individual descriptions of the gun and its historical context. With an extensive index, up-to-date glossary of technical terms, and historical timeline of firearms, it's easy to chart the history and development of firearms with this superb treatment of more than 1,000 internationally produced weapons.
