"This surveys how the rocket propelled grenade, developed just after World War II, grew to have strategic influence beyond expectation. It's one of the most important weapons of this century, and deserves this in-depth coverage." --The Midwest Book Review (December 2010) "It is a fascinating look at the weapon of choice of terrorism and extremism around the world. One that is presented here for the first time in English and one that I can highly recommend." --Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (October 2010) "In this book which is the only English language book published on the subject, [Gordon L. Rottman] provides his personal experiences of [the grenades'] effectiveness, both from the receiving end of the RPG-2 and RPG-7 and the firing of them." --www.mataka.org (November 2010)
