New Look! Relaunched with new jackets and 8 pages of new text!



Here is an original and exciting new look at the history of weapons and armor through the ages. Stunning real-life photographs reveal the design, construction and workings of everything from a medieval crossbow to a pair of dueling pistols, and offer a unique "eyewitness" view of how methods of warfare have changed. See the very first weapons ever made, the armor worn by medieval knights, the battledress of a Japanese samurai, the guns used by the soldiers, frontiersmen, and outlaws of the Wild West. Learn how Greek and Roman soldiers dressed for battle, how suits of armor were made and worn, how crossbows were loaded and fired, and how Native Americans hunted and fought on the Great Plains. Discover what weapons were carried by the first police officers, how sword and pistol duels were fought, when the first firearms were invented and how they worked, and much, much more!
