An original WW2 Thompson Submachine Gun handbook, published in 1942 (with publisher's date code on last page). It was published after the first edition of 1940, which had slightly different photographs. The book is a detailed guide to the handling and maintenance of the 'Tommy Gun' as used by the allied armies during WW2. Full of fascinating information and fully illustrated with great photos of the Thompson and its mechanism, this book will tell you all you need to know about the workings and use of the Thompson Submachine gun.


In good condition. The card cover shows general signs of use, creased corners, and some marks. The stapled binding is secure, and the hinges have been carefully reinforced with archival paper tape. The text and photographs are in good condition, with a few minor marks.
