The Destroying Angel comprehensively argues for the rifle-musket's place as the first modern infantry weapon. New research considers the performance of the rifle-musket in the Crimean War and the Indian Rebellion of 1857, where it was decisive in the hands of trained troops. The rifle-musket's bloody contribution to the American Civil War is carefully considered, along with changes to rifle technology and tactics in the Second Schleswig War (1864) and the Austro-Prussian War of 1866. 183 pages, with numerous illustrations.
