New book, 48 pages. In the late eighteenth century a new 'long arm', the rifle, began to replace the old smooth-bore musket, which had been used throughout Europe for centuries. The British Army was slow to adopt the new weapon but after 1800 the rifle began to make its presence felt and in the mid nineteenth century it superseded the smooth-bore musket as the Army's standard weapon. This book outlines the development of the rifle and chronicles its use in the British Army from its earliest days in the American Revolutionary War, through its 'coming of age' in the Napoleonic War and the technological advances of the Victorian era, to the present individual weapon, the SA80, used by British forces on service around the world.
