Description: Whether weapons fascinate or repel you, you need only thumb through the pages of Weapons to discover for yourself one of the most fascinating and provocative books you've seen in a long time. Weapons is the rich and exciting story, in text and picture, of arms through the ages -- from the first tied stone thrown by prehistoric man to the super bombs of today.

Illustrated with the unusually detailed and astonishingly realistic drawings of Edwin Tunis, it is a weapon-by-weapon account of man's ingenuity in the invention and improvement of arms for defense and offense. The detailed and humorous text is filled with useful information and anecdotes that bring history to life in romantic fashion -- Edwin Tunis is just as interested in the human-interest story behind the weapon and in the men who used it as he is in the weapon itself.

The range of man's weapons over the centuries of his existence on earth is astounding. Begin with the Stone Age, its slings and spears, its axes and bows and arrows, and follow through to the Copper and Bronze Ages when man made chariots, swords and daggers. Then advance to the Iron Age, with its swords, helmets, and complicated siege weapons. The highly fortified castles of the Normans, the tournaments of the knights in the Dark Ages, the change in manners of war and uniforms of war, the buzz bombs, the rockets, the atom and hydrogen bombs of the present ... all these things and more are included in this book.
