Graham Greener covers the story in three parts - the business and human story since the 1850s; the guns themselves and finally eight vital appendices: Part 1 describes the personalities, the workforce, the moves from Newcastle to Birmingham and London, the experiments and the innovations. Part 2 deals with the guns; the muzzle loaders, breech loaders, Empire models and shotguns. Technically illuminating and well illustrated this will be of great value to gun owners and historians. Part 3 has eight appendices, including Appendix F which gives a list of grades, models and their dates of production. The results of years of research, this is an important and authoritative reference.
