Illustrated Encyclopedia of Weapons of World War I
From the first tanks to the repeating rifle, from the biplane to the strategic bomber, and from early submarines to mighty dreadnoughts, the Illustrated Encyclopedia of Weapons of World War I examines key weapons from the Great War. It includes more than 300 pieces of equipment from handguns to zeppelins. Each weapon system is illustrated with a detailed profile artwork and a photograph showing the weapons system in service. Accompanying the illustrative material is detailed text that lists each weapon’s service history, the numbers built, and its variants, as well as full specifications.
Which tanks were first used at Cambrai? What was created in response to the request for a ‘bloody paralyser’? What was the range of the Paris gun? The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Weapons of World War I answers these questions and many more.
Packed with artworks, photographs and information on each featured weapon, Illustrated Encyclopedia of Weapons of World War I is a fantastic book for any general reader or military enthusiast.
