Top Customer Reviews
¡ It's 872 pages long - A tome of Garand information with no comparison
¡ Photos are color throughout, wherever color photos were available
¡ It features profuse use of inset marking photos, which is a feature I love to see
¡ The book is in portrait format, which is easier to reference, yet it still presents the rifles and inset photos in a pleasing layout that is more often experienced in a landscape formatted book
¡ The detail is incredible
¡ Bruce must have thousands of hours in this book
¡ I like how accessories are featured throughout the book
¡ Photography is top notch
¡ This book will be very difficult to top, and I don't think anyone will attempt to do so - This is the authoritative reference on the subject that will be studied for decades to come
I am among 58 who are listed as contributing to the book, however I do not have any major connection to it, and this is all Bruce Canfield's work. My contribution was extremely minor, in that I reviewed the Field Manual and Technical Manual commentary, and provided a couple of pictures. Whenever a good firearm reference book like this is written, many collectors are consulted for photos and information. It's what helps the author to make it as comprehensive as it can be at the time it's written.
Bruce should be extremely proud of this book. Wow! It's really exceptionally great.Read more ›
The reference material is excellent, and this is probably the most valuable book to have if you collect or wish to research the Garand rifle.
