The Military Knife & Bayonet
By Homer M. Brett
"The Military Knife and Bayonet" is the long awaited tome by the noted bayonet and knife authority Homer M. Brett. The Military Knife and Bayonet was actually a joint effort between Mr. Brett and the well known Japanese publisher Kesaharu Imai.
The book serves as a general military knife and bayonet history with emphasis on the two World Wars and the period since although many items will date back to the 1700's. The layout is done in alphabetical order listed by country of origin, this allows for an easy reference potential and is well thought out. Printed on high quality paper the pages are packed with professional, studio quality color photographs. Each photograph is accompanied with text in both Japanese and English to appeal to the respective countries in which it will be sold. While speaking of the dual text it should be noted that certain very distinct differences are carried over by the traditional Japanese publishing. In place of the usual single introduction we have come to expect in a reference book, the Japanese style is to have multiple letters of introduction by experts of equal or greater knowledge and stature. This allows the new author to be regarded as an expert in his or her field. Introductions are by M.H. Cole, Mickey Finn, Gary Boyd and Jerry L. Janzen fine company to be in for sure. The authors extensive research and actual field testing in parachute operations all over the globe have placed him in an enviable position to come into contact with many blades never before seen in the Western world. While the book does have world wide coverage the United States section is truly extensive. Covered are the standard models to be expected but also included are many never before seen prototypes and experimental models, some still in trials and testing.
The hardback book is 8 ½" X 11" with 392 pages of high quality glossy paper. Over 1000 knives are pictured in full color.
This is a must have book for your military blade library.
