Talk about Small Arms 1945-Present (Essential Identification Guide)

This book is fairly costly when you measure it against similar offerings on the same topic. I had these criticisms to offer once I'd read it.

First, the printing of the pictures is sometimes distorted, as if the photo was placed on a rubber sheet and then stretched out. This doesn't occur often but I wouldn't expect it to occur at all in a costly book.

Second, the editing is poor. Sometimes pictures of one type of weapon are labeled with captions that are incorrect. It seems like the photos were accidentally switched at some point and no one caught it.

Finally, some of the weapons are only presented as "cutaways." If I wanted pictures of the interior of weapons I would refer to the Numerich gun parts catalog, or to some of my books which are particularly concerned with gun repair and show exploded diagrams. This may be a personal quirk but it irritated me.

You can do better for the amount of money this book costs.

I should have heeded the other reviews. Lots of info on many small conflicts, but little, if any, on the weapons themselves other than general descriptions. Not worth it.

A book with good information and excelent dynamic of reading about small arms manufactured between 1945 and today, you can see a lot of types of good and bad designs used by almost all armies after WW2.

The title suggests that the book will primarily be discussing small arms weapons. In actuality the book actually spends more words describing conflicts and incidents and only have very minimal discussion about small arms/weapons....so it's quite misleading. The correct title of the book should be more like "Conflicts - 1945-Present". I hardly learnt anything new from the book except perhaps what small arms is associated/used in a conflict. Once again there is more talk about the conflict than the weapons in the book.
