Book Review: China’s Small Arms of the 2nd Sino-Japanese War

I picked up a copy of this book a couple years ago when Bin Shih first published it, but by the time I got around to doing a review it had sold out – so I didn’t bother. Well, a seconds printing run has been made, so it seems that now would be a good time to take a closer look at it. There are very few English-language resources on Chinese WWII small arms, and this is a good one…

As I mentioned in the video, it both the English and Chinese versions (in Traditional Chinese – the Simplified Chinese version is not available in the US) are available at ChineseFirearms.com – it is a privately printed work, so that is the only source for new copies.
