"In lavish and evocative text and pictures, The Story of the Gun brings the complete history of the gun vividly to life." "It traces the evolution of firearms from the earliest medieval 'hand cannons' to the high technology weapons of today. From matchlock and flintlock to the caseless cartridge; from muzzle-loading to multiple-barreled machine guns; from powder and ball to the modern self-contained cartridge, every major milestone is discussed and illustrated." "All the key inventions that changes the face of warfare, and therefore of the world, are featured here and graphics are used to demonstrate how they function. Every major inventor from Puckle and Ferguson, through Pauly, Colt, Mauser, Luger, Browning and Garand has his place in this story and the importance of their contributions to history are highlighted."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
