Simply put, the Thompson submachine gun is one of U.S. history's iconic firearms. Most enthusiasts are familiar with the firearm's gangster connections in the Roaring Twenties and as a staple of American GI's during World War II. What is not so well known is the British connection to the Thompson. During the Second World War, Great Britain purchased and used many thousand Tommy Guns, and this tale is beautifully rendered in Tom Davis' "Great Britain - The Tommy Gun Story." This 170 page black and white paperback is full of fascinating facts, compelling stories and terrific period illustrations. For those interested in this important facet of the Thompson's legacy, here's a book for you.
