Muskets...to a machine gun fight?
Inspired in part by his brother's WWII memoirs, the main setting of Jerry's second novel is war-torn Europe. He fictionally links parts of these memoirs with another historically accurate tidbit of history: when in 1870, the U.S. Government sold "obsolete" firearms to France . Part of the shipment included two hundred Model 1863 Rifled Muskets contracted to Remington in 1865... just like the one pictured on this book cover! Obsolete firearms...really?
