Full-color photos. "An eye grabber: large, clear photographic layouts of
weapons share pages with explanatory text and definitive illustrations. Each
double spread covers a subject, from primitive weapons to the 'Guns That Won
the West'; it's easy to forget their function in the beauty of the pieces and
their clever designs. The weapons from the Middle Ages are breathtaking simply
as art. A plum pudding of a book."-- "Kirkus.

Swords, arrows and darts, oh, my! I am not a huge fan of mayhem, but this book gives a very visual and detailed explanation of the hows and whys of human armaments, as well as protections that have been devised against such. History of war buffs, line up! Read full review
