Product Overview

Osprey''s new Weapon series provides a highly-detailed yet affordable overview of the development, use, and impact of small arms throughout history - from the sword to the machine gun.
Learn the true story of one of history''s most well travelled weapons. Developed late in World War I to be a fearsome trench-warfare weapon, the Thompson submachine gun''s fame and success came in unexpected quarters. An iconic and innovative design, the M1921 Thompson was soon adopted by Prohibition-era gangs and used ruthlessly on the streets of New York and Chicago. But its military career was relaunched with the outbreak of World War II, used by armies, commandos and resistance groups worldwide.
Using expert knowledge and first-hand accounts, this chronicle of one of the world''s greatest submachine guns analyzes the Thompson''s development, its legacy, and the experiences of the men who used it in combat. Features rare photographs and original artwork by Peter Dennis.
