The AK47 Assault Rifle is the world's most prolific and iconic weapon with over 80 million produced. Today, the largest threat the armies of the UK, USA and NATO are faced with is not nuclear, biological and chemical weapons but with man's real weapon of mass destruction, the AK47.

Much of what is written about it, both in books and in the general media is out of date, technically wrong, incomplete and hard to understand. Nigel Bennett sets out to truly demystify the AK47 in an easy to read and see format. He takes the reader through the three original basic models of Soviet design, the AK47, the AKM and the AK74 and then the differing worldwide production models. The book gives in-depth coverage of the internal workings of the AK47, highlighting what makes it the `perfect' killing machine. What makes this book stand out is the specially commissioned studio photography.
