More Information
By the time the first 2 printings of Dolf Goldsmith's book were sold out, much new Maxim material had been accumulated. Hence, this celebrated study, which has been hailed as "simply the best book ever written about machine guns" is back in a brand-new expanded edition, containing 200 additional pages of text and nearly 300 brand-new illustrations.

Hiram Maxim invented & pateneted the world's first automatic machine gun in 1883, which soon gained worldwide popularity. The story of the world's first true automatic machine gun begins right at the beginning (with the aid of rare photos and patent drawings of Sir Hiram's original working models), and charts the course to first adoption by the British Army in 1889. In World War I the Maxim earned the dubious distinction of being used in virtually identical versions by both sides. After extensive coverage of Maxim models as made and used in other countries, and the myriad Maxim accessories, the book also includes The Maxim in Depth and The Troubleshooter's Handbook, which explain how the Maxim works while providing many expert tips on troubleshooting and restoring the highly collectible Maxim today.
