Synopsis

This is a comprehensive directory of the military weapons used in World War Two, from field artillery and tanks to torpedo boats and night fighters, with more than 180 photographs. It covers all the main weaponry of the Allies and the opposing military alliance, with specification boxes providing information on each technology. It is a visual guide to the technologies used during World War Two, illustrated throughout with compelling photographs taken during the conflict. It is divided into three sections on the Army, Air Force and Navy. It describes all the most effective weapons of war, from escort carriers and heavy cruisers to rockets and the atom bomb. It features at-a-glance statistics for every weapon, such as crew, rate of fire, weight, length, height, muzzle velocity, speed, range, engine and armament. This comprehensive book brings together all the main weapons and technologies that were used during the war. The weapons are grouped chronologically and divided into three sections. The first, Army Weapons, features weapons used by the armies, such as Assault Guns, Heavy Mortars and V-Weapons.

This is followed by Air Force Weapons, which includes Night Fighters, Fighters and Jet Aircraft, and finally Naval Weapons, featuring Heavy Cruisers, Torpedo Boats and Midget Submarines. A brief history describes when and how each was used, the successes and failures, and lists the key specifications. This magnificent guide to the weapons used during World War Two is illustrated with more than 180 evocative photographs taken during the war, and is a fascinating reference book ideal for both general and specialist readers.
