Before James Bond made the Walther PPK a legend, it was used on the battlefields of WWII. Discover the legend and lore of all of the significant arms and artillery pieces since 1939 in this amazing illustrated Encyclopedia of Weapons.

Arranged in chronological order from 1939 onward, this easy-to-use encyclopedia organizes weapons into sub-categories for quick navigation. Categories include pistols, rifles, machine guns, field guns, heavy artillery, anti-aircraft guns, and even multiple rocket launchers.

This weapon-by-weapon account includes a description of each weapon's development and service record, illustrations and photographs, and a box of detailed technical specifications with both metric and imperial measurements. Additionally, this volume contains more than 900 full-color artworks as well as color and black-and-white photographs, including historical images.
