Jan Suermondt presents over 150 weapons used between 1940 and 1945 by both Allied and Axis forces, with detailed specifications, service history and actual accounts of their effectiveness by those who used them. These weapons defined the land war, from the US Army's BAR and the British Ben to the German Schmeisser and the Russian Degtaryev DP/DPM. Accompanied by actual war images of the weapons in use, this is a valuable and fascinating insight into the most important military struggle of the 20th Century.
