This vivid and authoritative history of the machine-gun is enhanced by the first-person battlefield accounts of veterans of many armies in combat. It features a mass of easy-to- follow technical information about the workings of machine-guns and their changing tactical role.

Machine Gunner ranges from the first machine-guns in the American Civil War to the conflict in the Gulf. It includes infantry machine-guns as well as those mounted on planes, helicopters and boats. It covers theatres of war across Europe, Africa, Korea, Vietnam, the Falkland Islands, as well as the machine-gun’s use by terrorist organisations and gangsters such as Al Capone and John Dillinger. Written by an expert in the field and including combat photographs, Machine Gunner is a must for anyone interested in modern military history.
