Ian Hogg is certainly an authority on the fire power of war, most especially World War two, this book is another excellent reference work produced by the man.

I have read this book on a few occasions and I find it to be a very handy guide with a good amount of information on many of the small arms. Because it is so well written I found myself wanting and wishing that Hogg had covered more arms or given those covered more text.

It is certainly one for the collection.
