“This book provides you with the history of its development and its various important operational uses. But more interestingly, it puts you on the front lines of war see firsthand how a fighter pilot un-jams and re-cocks a wing-mounted machine gun. You get to witness through the author’s own personal experiences of how he used the ‘fifty’ during the Vietnam War. He brings to the life the devastating effects of an armor-piercing round fired from a Humvee.” (November 2010)

Author Essay

For many years little has been published that covered specific weapons of war and I believe this has led to a significant gap on booksellers shelves. The new Osprey Weapons series hopes to remedy this by providing collectors, historians and enthusiasts with a detailed history of the development, usage and impact of the most significant weapons through history, from swords to machine guns. They will provide the reader with a good basic knowledge of the function of the individual weapon as well as a practical look at how they worked, or in some cases, didn’t work, in combat. I have felt for a long time that there was a significant demand for a series such as this, and am delighted to be both a contributing author and series editor. Osprey has employed many experts in their field I think the results will speak for themselves.–Series editor, Martin Pegler
