AMERICAN ARSENAL by William Beller


Email this review


Parents alarmed at the spread of war toys and adults wary of the war mentality will object to the implications as well as to the essence of this book. It provides thorough and up-to-date coverage of weapons and weapons systems from rifles to complex guided missiles, with considerable description of the development, characteristics and destructive potential of each. The rationale: ""If the United States is to hold its own on the battlefield, its military must encourage the birth of new weapons."" No alternatives or perspective here, just kill or be killed, and how.
