WEAPON: New series of books from Osprey Publishing

Osprey’s introduced a whole series of books dedicated to detailing some of the best-known weapons in history; covering their development, how they were put to use, and the dramatic impact that each weapon had on the history of warfare.

In each of the books the reader will discover how the weapon in question altered the soldier’s experience of combat, the tactics they employed, and the chances of success (or failure).  The books are all written by expert authors and feature extensive photography, full-colour artwork and insightful cutaways.

The first 6 books in the series are out now:


Titles due out next year are:

  • The Fairbairn-Sykes Commando Dagger
  • The Kalashnikov AK-47 Assault Rifle
  • The Colt 1911 Pistol
  • The Pattern 1853 Enfield Rifle
  • Beretta M9
  • Uzi Submachine Gun
