Developed during WWII but not adopted by the Army until 1954 as the Sterling Machine Carbine L2A1, this SMG was the standard weapon for British forces from Malaya to the Falkland Islands. The book covers the technical development and features an annotated cutaway display before spending the rest of its pages with stories of how and where it was used. There’s also a brief bio on the man who designed it. With plenty of gun photos, period photography of it being used and colour illustrations of action scenes this is a pint-sized, handy guide to the post-WWII weapon.
