The bayonet has long been of interest to military collectors,
and its history ? going back to the 17th century ? is just as
fascinating. This spectacular photographic exploration of the
weapon begins with the inception of the bayonet in Bayonne,
France, and follows its evolution through the technical
advances of the next few centuries. Over 500 large scale,
full-color photos provide overall and detail views of 300
different bayonets from around the globe.
The book covers all types of bayonets, including Plug, Sword,
Socket, Knife, Yataghan, and many more. In addition to the
photographs, each bayonet is detailed with pricing
information, physical description, manufacturing data, service
history, and an examination of the effectiveness of the model.
The book also contains a reference section with information
on additional bayonet publications, collections and websites for
collectors and enthusiasts.
