Not much said about the Krag rifle here, but a heck of a read for the Military buff written in the beginning of the Great War. If nothing else, you may want to just scroll through and look at the pictures. I am sure you will scratch your head on some things. Of course a lot more progressed before the war's end in 1918. Couldn't find Volume I.

Edward C. Crossman wrote the chapters on rifles (pages 139-142) and 'bullet flight' (pages143-147).

Crossman was rather disparaging of the British Short Magazine Lee-Enfield and French Lebel rifle and early war uniform, with Red Pants.

Crossman thought highly of the Canadian Ross rifle and German Mauser.

(A Norwegian Krag and Martini hunting rifle are inexplicably shown on a picture page of Arms).

The theme of most of this work seems to be the lack of American preparedness for a modern war, if attacked.

Knute - Thanks for sharing.
