Enduringly popular with small-arms enthusiasts today, the Martini-Henry rifle gave British soldiers the edge in a host of Victorian-era battles, from the Anglo-Zulu War to the opening months of World War II. A noted authority on colonial warfare employs first-hand accounts and specially commissioned colour artwork to tell the absorbing story of this powerful single-shot breechloader's origins, battlefield use and lasting impact.
Dr Stephen Manning is an expert in Victorian colonial warfare and the owner of two original Martini-Henry rifles. He is an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Exeter and the author of numerous books including Evelyn Wood VC: Pillar of Empire (Pen & Sword, 2007) and Soldiers of the Queen: Victorian Colonial Conflict in the Words of Those who Fought (The History Press, 2009).
