There are some names in the firearms world which will never be entirely forgotten. Among them are Maxim, Vickers, Hotchkiss and Nordenfeldt. The latter invented a number of machine guns, many of which were issued to the Royal Navy, and this book looks at a number of his inventions, and compares them with their competitors. Needless to say the book is an unashamed sales brochure in truth, but the data given, and the descriptions of the weapons makes for extremely interesting reading.'The book examines the single- and multi-barreled weapons, as well as the various caliber’s in which they were sold. So from single to 4-barreled guns, from 1 inch to 2.2 inch guns. Each weapon is shown mounted and ready for use, and naval carriages are also included in the many illustrations inn the book.'In all there are 53 plates, six of which show penetration comparisons between the Nordenfeldt 1 inch and the Hotchkiss 37 mm. Other plates show the 4 barreled anti-torpedo boat gun, the 5-barreled infantry gun and the embrasure mounting for Nordenfeldt guns, as well as many other interesting details. There are also 55 tables giving weights and dimensions, comparisons, and every other detail worth mentioning of both Nordenfeldt guns and the competitors.'The text includes advise on the use of the weapons in various tactical situations, both on land and afloat.
