For those of us who did have a love affair with this rifle, it is a book that should be on our bookshelves if not in our hands, and for those who have never experienced the weapon, it's an interesting and illuminating read that may help to understand why it was so revered. --arrse.co.uk
The title proves again how this series of titles could be used as instruction manuals for troops still using this weapon and its variants. --Gun Mart
