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