Mr. Priest did an excellent job distilling the broad ranging topic of socket bayonets into a comprehensive, well written book. While the book does not provide in-depth coverage of every phase of bayonet development, it covers the important milestones, and describe how the changing technology changed the tactics used by the infantry through time.The illustrations are amazing, and complement (or enhance) the well written text.If you are looking for an was to use identification guide, tho may not be the book for you, as it is laid out by time period. If you want a well written treatment of the subject of socket bayonets, this is the book for you.
Excellent book in a small and easy to handle format. Just one single drawback: technical details (length of blades and diameter of mortise) are a bit hard to find as often lost in the text and not figuring below the excellent and clear pictures. Otherwise an excellent basic handbook for colector. Good and useful book.Très bon bon bouquin de base sur les baÃ¯onnettes à douille dans un petit format pratique. Pourrait juste Ãªtre un peu plus clair dans les descriptions techniques (longueur de lames, diamètre des douilles) Elles y sont mais souvent dans le texte et il faut chercher un peu partout. Les photos sont claires et de bonne qualité. Autrement très bon bouquin de base pour le collectionneur. Bon livre utile.
Not a bad little book but the pictures are too small to see any useful detail and associating captions with items in the illustrations is confusing.
