Bayonets: An Illustrated History

Bayonets: An Illustrated History
August 11, 2008
by  Blade Staff
Posed against the technology of today’s modern warfare, the bayonet seems out of place, an anachronism in the post-nuclear age. When you think of a bayonet your mind likely pictures a WWI- or WWII-era basic training camp with doughboys running full-tilt at a straw dummy and an angry drill instructor screaming “Kill” at the top of his lungs. 

Maybe you picture a Civil War daguerreotype of a lone Confederate soldier, a look of deadly seriousness on his face, his gun at the ready complete with bayonet, sharpened and ready for any hand-to-hand combat he might face on the fields of battle. Or, perhaps you see an infantry division on Omaha Beach, charging into battle.

 It’s a rare occasion when today’s fighting men and women use a bayonet. The M16 carries a bayonet lug, but it’s hardly ever put to use. Acts of war are done remotely, with the push of a button. Bayonets: An Illustrated History pays tribute to these weapons that brought war up-close and personal. It’s not a glorification of battle, but a catalog of 300 bayonets from 37 countries. 

Inside you’ll find 250 pages of color photos that document the huge variety of styles. The history, evolution, and development are traced along with period photos. Blade enthusiasts will love the close-up pictures that show every detail of hilt and blade.
