The Grim Reaper... It would be safe to say that the "AK-47" rifle and its many variants have been indirectly responsible for incalculable military and civilian casualties perhaps more than any military small arm ever made. Indirectly because a firearm is an inanimate object; it cannot make decisions, it is the person who has their finger on the trigger that does that and they are the true Grim Reaper. Ultimately irresponsible and indiscriminate worldwide distribution of the rifle is largely responsible for the sins mistakenly applied to the firearm itself.
The Grim Reaper: AK-47 is by far the most detailed history of the AK-47 and the Kalashnikov variants that have been manufactured all around the world, including commercial versions in the United States. If you are looking for a single reference book on the AK-47 for your library, this is hands down the best choice. This book weighs over 6 pounds!
