Kalashnikov Bayonets collector's guide
Kalashnikov Bayonets The Collector's Guide to Bayonets for the AK and its Variations

What could have been an awesome book.
The information is there, well most of it. It's hard to find some types of information, and the index is weak.
The real killer is the photography- it absolutely is terrible. Even if one can overlook the lack of color correction, almost every single photo- including macro shots for necessary details- is low resolution and pixilated.
Sadly, this is a hearty "Do NOT buy" Maybe they'll do it right next time.
They will live a long time, these men of the South Pacific. They, like their victories, will be remembered as long as our generation lives. Longer and longer shadows will obscure them, until their Guadalcanal sounds distant on the ear like Shiloh and Valley Forge. --- Michener, Tales of the South Pacific
