Machine Gun: The Story of the Men and the Weapon That Changed the Face of War
Anthony Smith (au)
Tells the story of the people responsible for the development of the machine gun (MG) -- beginning with Samuel Coltís creation of the first mass-produced, rapid-firing revolver to Richard Gatling & his Gatling Gun, & Hiram Maxim, whose Maxim Gun was the first truly automatic weapon. Traces the uses of the rapid-fire gun & its slow integration into the weaponry of military forces around the world. First used primarily to ďpacifyĒ native populations, the MG was not fully integrated into mil. tactics until after the casualties of WW1 & the resultant social upheaval that changed the nature of tactical warfare. ďAn account of the people who invented & promoted the MG, how it affected the very nature of warfare, & of the society out of which it arose.
