'This is a gun book. It is not simply a book of war stories, it is sixty-five interviews with soldiers and Marines who relate their experiences with US infantry weapons in combat during World War II and Korea. Each man had his own opinion on the weapon that he had used and relates those observations to the reader. The differing opinions of these men are fascinating. One man loved the M1 rifle and hated the M1 carbine, while the next loved the M1 carbine and hated the M1 rifle. Much of what collectors and history buffs think we know about the use of US infantry weapons in combat has been derived from movies and books. Some movies, like 'Bank of Brothers' are very accurate, others are not. The general history books rarely contain in-depth details of firearms usage. The stories about US infantry weapons contained in this book are the real hands-on experiences of the men who actually used them for their intended purposes. When I first read these interviews, I could not put the manuscript down.' - Scott Duff 237pp.
