NOW SHIPPING! The Vickers machine gun was such an integral part of 20th century history that it is embedded in almost every history book of the two Great Wars. In 1994, historian and machine gunner Dolf L. Goldsmith followed up his history of the Maxim machine gun in The Devil’s Paintbrush–Sir Hiram Maxim’s Gun with the story of the Maxim’s progeny, the Vickers machine gun, titled The Grand Old Lady of No Man’s Land.
Now, a quarter of a century later, Dolf has participated in the upgrading of that massive book with over 270 more pages of new information, color photos and research completed by himself and three more Vickers historians: Richard Fisher, Robert G. Segel and Dan Shea. This is the ultimate collectors’ book for Vickers machine gun enthusiasts, historians, collectors and scholars alike!
