London, England: Hermes House, 2009. 1st Edition. Paperback. 4to. 256 pages. Very Good+ with no DJ. B&W and Color Photographs. Flexible covers. Slight wear to covers. This beautifully presented book traces the fascinating history of daggers, dirks and bayonets through to the 21st century.

The book looks at the part played by fighting blades in military combat, from the famous Highland dirk to 20th-century Commando knives, and traces the history of the transformation of the hand- held stabbing tool into the bayonets of World Wars I and II ISBN: 1846815029 (Knives, Daggers, Bayonets, Encyclopedias)
