The Destroying Angel: The Rifle-Musket as the First Modern Infantry Weapon $11.95
by Brett Gibbons
This short but detail-packed 108-page book argues for the rifle-musket's place as the first modern infantry weapon. New research considers the performance of the rifle-musket in the Crimean War and the Indian Rebellion of 1857, where it was decisive in the hands of trained troops. The rifle-musket's bloody contribution to the American Civil War is also considered, although the author argues that untrained American volunteers were generally unprepared to exploit the full capabilities of their rifles.
