      AK 47 The Grim Reaper (Frank Iannamico) - superior. The best, IMO Kalashnikov, The Arms And The Man (Edward Ezell) - excellent The AK and Ak Kalashnikov Rifles (Joe Poyer) - pretty good Guns And Ammo Complete Book of The AK (it's a magazine, but good).   No single weapon has spread so much raw power to so many people in so little time&#;and had such a devastating effect&#;as the AK assault rifle. This book examines the legacy of this world-changing weapon, from its creation as Author: Larry Kahaner.

    VOLUME 1: x39mm variations of the Kalashnikov platform: AK; AK; AKM; RPK; AK; and many more examples from Russia/Soviet Union, Albania, Bulgaria, China, DDR.   The book’s discussion of the difficulties of penetrating layers of secrecy and Soviet myth in deconstructing the historiography of the AK will be fascinating to many historians, less so to Author: Patrick Hennessey.
