Robert W.D. Ball is well known to military history buffs for his carefully researched, beautifully illustrated books and SPRINGFIELD ARMORY: SHOULDER WEAPONS 1795-1968 is no exception. This book surveys the contributions of the Springfield Armory to American freedom from the time of its independence to 1968.

American soldiers carried Springfield rifles for most of this country's history. A veteran himself, Ball understands this and his determination to do justice to this once-great national arsenal and the arms it produced is admirable.

This would make a great companion to Lieutenant Colonel William S. Brophy's classic THE SPRINGFIELD '03 RIFLES. I like Ball's work and am happy to give him five stars and my highest recommendation. This is a great book for anybody interested in firearms, military history, or the Springfield Arsenal and its impact on the history of our country.
