Welcome to my website

The contents of this website cover military guns and ammunition of all sizes, but the focus is on automatic weapons of up to 57 mm calibre. See the INDEX.

If you would like to discuss these or related topics, or simply follow the discussions, I also host a FORUM which you are welcome to visit.

The forum includes some discussion of an alternative World War 2 novel, The Foresight War, which you can read about HERE.
