Infantry Small Arms of the 21st… Hardback Add to Basket £30.00

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.

First-class documentation very useful for both gun lovers and modern miniature painters and modelers in general.

Midwest Book Review

No one has yet replaced the WHB Smith epic Small Arms of the World but, in its field, this new book comes very close. The WHB Smith covered small arms from the earliest weapons to the latest in both military and civilian use with detailed notes on operation and field stripping. This book has a narrower remit but covers the latest development and in-service infantry small arms. – Most Highly Recommended.

The Armourer, March 2020

I used to have access to documents and publications weaponry of the world's armies when I worked for BAe defence systems in the 1980s/1990s, and some of it was fascinating stuff. Leigh Neville provides a comprehensive look at infantry small arms in use in the world's armies now, during the 21st century. We've come a long way in the manufacture of weapons of destruction...

Army Rumour Service (ARRSE)

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.

Military Model Scene, Robin Buckland

This is a solid piece of work from Leigh Neville. I would term the book as niche, but if small arms are your thing this will be essential reading.

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.
