This is a unique and most exhaustive encyclopedia of weapons of all kinds in a single volume—from swords to rifles; from tanks to fighter aircrafts; from nuclear submarines to ballistic missiles; from hydrogen bombs to biological warfare, everything is here. This book tells you not only all about weapons, their design, technology and designers, but also about the men who made them, the men who used them and the impact they made on the course of history.
Why do we need this book? Firstly, because such a book does not exist and secondly, because the fate of nations is still decided by their wars; that is, indirectly by their weaponry. Given men of similar competence on both sides, the quality of the weapons wielded by them will decide their fates! You got to know more about the existing weapons if you desire to produce better weapons in future. Hence this book!
A must read for everybody who is fascinated by weapons, and wants to know more about them, including all ‘men of arms’ namely, people in the armed forces, police and paramilitary forces, professional scientists, academicians and students who wish to learn about the technology of advanced things like nuclear, biological and chemical weapons. Also of immense use to media people because day in and day out they have to speak or write of all sorts of weaponry without having adequate knowledge about anyone of them—this is a reference which should be kept constantly at hand for absolutely authoritative information on any weapon system in the world.
The only affordable and complete encyclopedia of weaponry in the whole world—exhaustive yet attractive, informative yet interesting with 360 rare photographs, it is the ultimate encyclopedia of weaponry.
