Description
The global conflict of World War II resulted in a technological arms race of unprecedented scale, and this book describes and compares more than 300 different weapons systems developed before and during the war, in sections on air power, armored fighting vehicles, artillery and missiles, naval power, and small arms. Graphic displays offer head-to-head comparisons of fighter planes during the Battle of Britain, late-war strategic bombers, tanks at the battle for Kursk, anti-tank guns in the Normandy campaign, Nazi revenge weapons, warships at the Battle of the River Plate, aircraft carriers at the Battle of Midway, small arms in the battle for Okinawa, submachine guns at the siege of Stalingrad, and late-war assault rifles. Through captioned photographs, drawings, and specially created graphical charts, this highly visual reference book compares these various weapons directly, allowing the reader to see the relative capabilities—maximum speed, effective range, armor penetration, rate of fire, weapons caliber, magazine capacity, bomb load—of each fighting force's materiel.
