i found this book fascinating.not only does it fill in the gaps in my previous knowledge on models and history, but it is much more; outlining the politics behind the firearm industry. and gives a look at the philosophy behind such a unique family that has kept its interests intact for so many generations.an excellent read and the photographs of peter beard are brilliant. outstanding value at the price.
