Illustrated Encyclopedia of Weapons of World War II, ed. Chris Bishop.
Based on the Orbis War Machine series of the 1980s some of
the post-war material is now badly dated, but the main articles are
still valid, and the book covers a massive range of military equipment,
from the latest jet aircraft to trucks and light vehicles. Well
illustrated, and good at tracing the development of weapon types and the
relationship between different items.
