The Martini-Henry Rifle

The Martini-Henry Rifle Book Review

By Rachel E. Veres

Date of Review March 2014 Title The Martini-Henry Rifle
Author Stephen Manning Publisher Osprey Publishing
Published 2013 ISBN 9781780965062
Format 80 pages, softbound MSRP (USD) $18.95


Manning recaps the British Army's first purpose-designed breechloader in the 26th volume of Osprey's acclaimed "Weapon" series.  Coverage highlights the rifle's origins and its iconic use in Victorian colonial warfare.  And figure painters will enjoy Dennis' color artwork.  Another excellent Osprey introduction!

Coverage includes:

  • Introduction
  • Development
  • Use
  • Impact
  • Conclusion
  • Bibliography
  • Index

My sincere thanks to Osprey Publishing for this review sample!
