GANDER, TERRY - Machine Guns

The Crowood Press , Ramsbury, 2003. First edition, Hardcover. New/new. 192 pages. With frontispiece, plates & illustrations. The machine gun has been around since the end of the 19th century and its impact on warfare cannot be overestimated. Its capability of prolonged fire, ability to wipe out dozens of victims in a single burst without the need for enormous accuracy on the part of the operator, has made it a fearsome weapon.
