About The Thompson Submachine Gun: From Prohibition

Product Description Osprey's new Weapon series provides a highly-detailed yet affordable overview of the development, use, and impact of small arms throughout history - from the sword to the machine gun.Learn the true story of one of history's most well travelled weapons. Developed late in World War I (1914-1918) to be a fearsome trench-warfare weapon, the Thompson submachine gun's fame and success came in unexpected quarters. An iconic and innovative design, the M1921 Thompson was soon adopted by Prohibition-era gangs and used ruthlessly on the streets of New York and Chicago. But its military career was relaunched with the outbreak of World War II (1939-1945), used by armies, commandos and resistance groups worldwide.Using expert knowledge and first-hand accounts, this chronicle of one of the world's greatest submachine guns analyzes the Thompson's development, its legacy, and the experiences of the men who used it in combat. Features rare photographs and original artwork by Peter Dennis. Review “Will appeal to those interested in firearms and to people interested in 1920s era shootouts between law enforcement and gangsters.” ―Greater Games Industry (Spring 2011)“The book chronicles the history of the world's greatest well travelled gun analyzing its development, its legacy and firsthand accounts of the men who used it in combat. [Martin Pegler] provides detailed information on the experiences of actually firing the Tommy gun in combat, how effective it was in battle and what could go wrong.” ―www.mataka.org (November 2010)“Provides a finely detailed review of the development, use, and impact of small arms throughout history. Expert knowledge and first-hand accounts contribute to the analysis of the Thompson's development and those who used it, making for an outstanding survey recommended for any military collection.” ―The Midwest Book Review (November 2010)“In this book on the Thompson, author Martin Pegler covers the development, early years and modifications done to the gun. It also covers the use of the Thompson by both civilians and the military. Finally, a look at the impact of the gun is covered. I guess we could easily say that thanks to Hollywood, most people of the time knew about this weapon. It is a superb book that is fascinating to read. A great start to a new series and one that I am positive you will enjoy. Highly recommended.” ―Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness About the Author Peter Dennis was born in 1950.
