ABOUT THE BOOK This book outlines the development of the rifle and chronicles its use in the British Army over the past two hundred years. It takes the story of the British rifle from its earliest days in the American Revolutionary War, through its ‘coming of age’ in the Napoleonic War and, via the technological changes of the Victorian era, through to the present ‘individual weapon’, the SA80, used by British forces on service around the world.
