The book reviews the evolution of English pistols between the English Civil War (1642-49) and the late 1930s, thus covering the birth, flowering and death of specifically English inventiveness in this field. The author constantly sets technical development in social context, filling the book as much with good tales, as with spanning-keys, scears and springs. US and UK readers alike will enjoy the revolver-controversy of the 1850s between the American Colt and the English Adams. Sadly, this mature and definitive book was written by a still young man who was, soon afterwards, killed by a sniper while serving as an officer in World War II.
