One of the most recognizable assault rifles of the modern era, the M16 is the defining American weapon of the 20th century.
Gordon L Rottman entered the US Army in 1967, volunteered for Special Forces and completed training as a weapons specialist. He served in the 5th Special Forces Group in Vietnam in 1969-70 and subsequently in airborne infantry, long-range patrol and intelligence assignments until retiring after 26 years. He was a Special Operations Forces scenario writer at the Joint Readiness Training Center for 12 years and is now a freelance writer, living in Texas.
"Author Rottman does a superb job of covering the idea, development and manufacture of the M16, a gun that has easily seen over 8,000,000 units produced both here and overseas... It all makes for another fine book and if you are interested in weapons, then this book would make a fine addition to your library." --Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
