Over 2000 illustrations. An amazing reference for the avid collector and historian. The four decades since the original edition of The World's Assault Rifles was published have seen exponential advancements in the design and development of this infantry weapon. When the acknowledged dean of military small-arms historians, Thomas B. Nelson, teamed with one of America's top hands-on gun writers, Gary Paul Johnston, to do a complete, decades-long revision of this classic volume, their reputations and professionalism gained them unprecedented access to classified archives, corporate and private collections, and military and museums weapons all around the world. The result is a monumental body of research that may well have been impossible for any other team to assemble. From this wealth of data, the authors present 70 chapters comprising more than 1,200 pages of weapons from more than 50 countries, lavishly illustrated with 2,000 photos and drawings.Biographie de l'auteur :
