Description Shipping Notes
 

Over 300 military archive images in black and white and color. Documenting the Garand Rifle's origin, development, battlefield use, and postwar experimentation from WWi to the M14.

The title of this book is borrowed from artist Jes Schlaikjer's 1945 poster. He, in turn, seems to have borrowed the words form John C. Garand himself. By all accounts a quiet and modest man, Garand did not enjoy the spotlight of wartime publicity. Pressed by a reported to comment on his monumental contributions to the war effort, he is said to have replied, "My gun speaks loud enough for both of us." Indeed it did, in every corner of the world.
