Professional soldiers, law enforcement officers and students and researchers of small arms will gain a working knowledge of the most common and successful urban combat weapons (including some currently in development).

The G3 Battle Rifle Leroy Thompson 2019-05-30 During the Cold War, the G3 was one of the world's pre-eminent battle rifles. Developed in France and Spain after 1945, the rifle was produced by the German arms manufacturer Heckler & Koch. Adopted by more than 40 countries and produced on licence by many more, it was widely employed during colonial wars in Africa, insurgencies in Latin America and conflicts in the Middle East, but perhaps its widest use was in the Iran–Iraq War. Variants of the G3 have also seen substantial usage among Special Forces including Britain's Special Boat Service and the US Navy SEALs. Semi-automatic versions, especially the HK91 and HK93, remain popular in the United States, and the G3-derived HK11 and HK21 family of light machine guns have also been widely adopted by military and law-enforcement units across the world. Fully illustrated with specially commissioned artwork, this study examines one of the iconic weapons of the Cold War era.

The Encyclopedia of the World's Special Forces Mike Ryan 2014-03-06 Since the advent of special forces units in World War II, governments and armies have trained small, elite teams of soldiers to perform operations deemed too risky or demanding for regular troops. Training to enter the special forces is harsh in the extreme, and the few who enter the ranks of the elite can expect a life of intense operational danger. Special forces missions include counter-insurgency, hostage rescue, sabotage, spying, covert surveillance and force ambush. Most of these operations are performed deep behind hostile lines or within enemy strongholds. With a battlefield effect out of all proportion to their numbers, special forces today are usually the first into combat and the last out. The Encyclopedia of the World’s Special Forces is the most comprehensive guide available to the world’s elite forces. Units are arranged by the type of mission that they specialize in; Sea, Land, Air and Counter-Revolutionary Warfare. Each entry includes detailed and authoritative information about the unit, its history, tactics, weapons and equipment used, and many have thrilling accounts of operations both past and recent. A special section on the training and selection of methods of a select few units, including the US Delta Force and British SAS, details just what it takes to become a member of the elite. Highly illustrated throughout with photographs and artworks bringing the text to life, The Encyclopedia of the World’s Special Forces will appeal to anyone who has ever wanted to find out more about the world of the special forces soldier.

National Rifle Association Josh Sugarmann 2010-04-19 The National Rifle Association is the most powerful and feared lobby in America. It has tens of millions of dollars, millions of well-armed members and influence at the highest levels of government. Sugarmann, a leading expert on firearms violence, gun control and the NRA, is nationally recognized as an innovative and insightful voice in America's gun control debate. This is the first in-depth account of how the NRA uses fear, intimidation and cash to promote firearms sales and derail gun controls. The byzantine world of the gun lobby is explored: NRA internal power struggles and scandals; competing pro-gun organizations; the warm and longstanding ties between the NRA and the firearms industry; and the power and influence of the Second Amendment fundamentalists, alert to any infringement on their "right" to own any weapon they choose. To boost firearms sales and increase its membership, the NRA has teamed up with the industry to stakeout new markets: women, children and black Americans. Preying on Americans' fears, the NRA promises that true security can only come from the barrel of a gun. On Capitol Hill and in state legislatures, the NRA cherishes its reputation for brass-knuckle political power. The result is that intimidation--including death threats--from NRA members is not uncommon. Faced recently with a litany of unpopular issues to defend--cop-killer bullets, plastic "terrorist special" handguns and assault weapons--today's NRA is increasingly out of step with the American public, the majority of gun owners and police. As a result, the NRA is at a crossroads. Will it retreat to its traditional activities of target shooting, hunting and safety training? Or will it regroup and rearm, ready to wage war on the increasing number who dare question its unyielding pro-gun stance? NRA: Money, Firepower & Fear chronicles the past, present and uncertain future of this uniquely American institution and its role in the gun control wars. Tossing aside accepted stereotypes, it reveals an NRA that will shock gun owners and non-gun owners alike. The NRA's original vision of a coonskin-capped "citizen-soldier" has turned into a national nightmare of violence and death. NRA: Money, Firepower & Fear tells why.--From publisher description.
