This book covers U.S. military pocket knives via a color chronology, beginning in the early 1800s and ending with the high tech knives of the 21st century.

Publishers Description:

Silvey's latest contribution to the literature is a new book entitled Pocket Knives of the United States Military, and it's well worthy of the Silvey reputation. This book follows the format of the last two Silvey works, a well done hardcover book filled with beautiful full color photographs and brief descriptions of top notch knives. The overall size of the new book is smaller; reduced, as Mike tells me, to keep the pocketknives in proportion to their actual size. It also serves a secondary purpose in helping to keep the book's cost down to a remarkable $24.95. That's a mac-and-cheese price for sirloin, folks!

Pocket Knives of the United States Military is organized into the following sections: Introduction, The First Folders, World War I, World War II, and Postwar (which covers knives up through the late 1980s). Coverage ranges from the expected pages of TL-29s and 4-blade utility knives to rare switchblades, demolition knives, OSS and CIA folders, and far, far more U.S. Navy rope knives than I ever knew existed. The photos are as beautiful as expected, and the knives pictured the finest that could be procured. A bibliography is included as an added bonus.

Whether your interests lie in pocketknives or military knives, Pocket Knives of the United States Military is a beautiful and useful reference at a bargain price. Highly recommended.
