Reviews

"Author Robert Maze tells us the sometimes convoluted story of the Webley Service Revolver from its inception to today's use. This includes all of the different variations and improvements made to the gun over its life time and has additional information on its use by the Irish Constabulary and the Shanghai Municipal Police. It all makes for another superb book and if you are interested in weapons, then this book is very much a must have. Highly recommended." --Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness..".this book provides a fine history that incorporates basic firearms design and the evolution of pistol use. A special pick for military or firearms collectors alike." --The Midwest Book Review (November 2012)
