The MG 42 was actually a revolutionary approach to machine gun design, and was nicknamed 'Hitler's buzzsaw' by the Allied forces. It's still in use some seventy years later. This examination of the pioneering machine gun will appeal to military and weaponry collections alike, offering vintage black and white photos of wartime experiences throughout.
James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review (January 2013)
Dozens of excellent photos and informative drawings illustrate this handy handbook. And heavy reliance on primary sources -- coupled with abundant annotations -- confirms its value as a reliable reference.
