After his book on WWI French Army knives, C. Mery invites us to discover the knives, daggers, and bayonets French soldiers have used since the end of the Great War. This 224 page book covers most of the models used by French soldiers during an era when fewer regulation models, resourcefulness, and personal purchases were the rule. More than ever before, C. Mery strove to liven up each page with a slew of color pictures of soldiers carrying the actual weapons he describes. Therefore, an unprecedented plethora of more than 550 photos complements the concise explanation texts. Collaboration with servicemen, and seeking first-hand information from veterans were key elements in writing this book which will satisfy the most demanding bayonet collectors, and most astute knives connoisseurs alike. Only 200 copy in english.
