We’ve looked at a couple early self-loading rifles that saw aerial use this week, so I figure it’s a good time to check out a book on the subject. Flying Guns of World War I is an excellent work on aerial weaponry up to 1932, from the very first hand weapons up to heavy cannons. It goes into detail on not just the guns, but also the aircraft and tactics of the time.
This book deserves a place in the library of anyone interested in unusual and interesting firearms – pick up a copy and enjoy!
