"Some military writers have described the machine gun as 'the supreme infantry weapon' and during World War 2 it certainly maintained its tactical role inherited from the battlefields of World War 1.

This Fact File sets out to describe the mach i n e g u n s u sed by all the warring nations involved in World War 2. Each machine gun is described and illustrated along with its data. All the machine guns used are mentioned including World War 1 veterans such as the German MG08 and the Bri ti sh . 3 03 " Vi ck e rs , and going right up to the famous German MG42. The coverage includes such items as the Indian Army's Vickers-Berthier, the Japanese Nambu series, the Russian M1910, and the Czech ZB26. Also included are the numerous lig ht mac hin e gun s suc h a s the Bren and American Johnson. The largest calibre covered is 15 mm with heavier guns being covered in other Fact Files."
