Product Description

About the Author

Martin Pegler has a BA Hons in Medieval and Modern History and an MA in Museum Studies, both from University College, London, and was for many years the Senior Curator of Firearms at the Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds. He now lives in the Somme, France, where he and his wife run a small bed and breakfast, which is situated on top of the old German front line! Martin has established The Somme Historical Centre (www.martinpegler.com), where visitors can see the technology used in the 1914-18 trench warfare. In his spare time Martin runs motorcycle tours of the battlefield. He is the author of a number of books including 'The Military Sniper since 1914' (Osprey, 2001), 'Firearms in the American West 1700-1900' (The Crowood Press, 2002), and the highly acclaimed 'Out of Nowhere: A History of the Military Sniper' (Osprey, 2004), and he has also contributed to a number of magazines. In the 1980s he had the privilege of interviewing many World War I veterans about their wartime experiences, and the recordings are now part of the sound archives of the Imperial War Museum, London. Martin is the series editor for Osprey's Weapon series.

Like all these related books, this gives a good study of the rifle that was in service with the British army for well over 50 years. A good book to read for collectors, historians and shooters at a sensible size and price.

I found this most interesting. Not much in the way of technical detail but a great history of the Enfield rifles from the 1880s to the 1970s.

As a Lee-Enfield Anorak I bought this for the kindle - I've already got "The Lee-Enfield: A Centuary of Lee-Metford and Lee-Enfield Rifled and Carbines" by Ian D. Skennerton. but thats a weighty tome and something more handier is always well more handy.

Mr.Pegler has made a good fist of this informative little book - all the more handy for being available on the kindle format. Of course the Photgrapsh and Diagrams are a bit here and there depending on your font size, but nothing really detracts.

Well Worth the £8.70.

Well written and useful. As a former head curator from the Royal Armouries, the author knows his subject. I have read others he has written and as here, he clearly takes the time to fully research his subject.
