Soldiers in today's modern armies have access to ever more advanced infantry weapons; lighter, more compact and more accurate than anything seen in the last century. These include combat pistols, personal assault rifles, sub-machine guns, sniper rifles, shotguns, light machine guns and squad automatic weapons.

Infantry Small Arms of the 21st Century features all these weapons and more in exhaustive detail. The author draws on the operational combat experience of the users in war zones such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Ukraine. As well as assessing and comparing the potency of different nations weapon systems , the book looks to the future demands of the infantry man.

As in the case of the author's previous work Guns of Special Forces 2001-2015, the result is an affordable, comprehensive and authoritative study of modern infantry weapons.

An excellent look at the variety of small arms in use with military forces around the world, and interesting factors such as combat ranges, cost, reliability, weight and more. Add other factors such as training and even eye health are all factors to be added in to the various equations for the policy and decision makers.

War History Online, Mark Barnes

With so many new weapons in use with modern military units it can be very hard to accurately identify a weapon accurately and this offering from Pen and Sword will help with that. The weapons are covered well with good information provided on them. Most of this can be found in most titles covering like data, but for me it is the information on the weapons in use and the troops expected to use them that sells the title. The result is a title that well rounded and provides more than just information on the weapon.

Guns of the Special Forces 2001 – 2015 (Hardback)

In the years since 9/11 Special Forces of many nations have been in almost constant action in covert, high risk operations around the globe. These include the two long conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, fighting nationalist insurgents and jihadist terrorists, as well as other lesser known operations. The weapons used by SF are a constant source of interest and speculation, as are SF training, methods and vehicles. The armouries of these elite units have developed rapidly to meet their demands and the ever more sophisticated threat. They include for example suppressed piston-driven carbines, programmable…
