The product of more than four decades of world-wide research and study, evolving through two prior editions and many other related titles. This is the ultimate account of a century’s development and issue of the Lee-Enfield series. The Lee Enfield has proven itself as the finest battle rifle of all time. No other firearm has served for so long at home and abroad with such a proud record. This study encompasses all aspects of Lee-Enfield development & production... Britain, America, India, Australasia, South Africa & the Far East. Rifles, carbines, bayonets, parts, tools, accessories & ammunition are arranged into specific groups & chapters. The Pattern Room collection and library has been the primary source for samples and records. With the larger format, this presentation sets a new standard for collectors, students & shooters of the venerable Lee-Enfield... indeed, for all arms books. While the 'Lee-Enfield Story' has long been accepted as the definitive tome on the Lee-Metford and Lee-Enfield rifle series, this new volume increases the record from 504 to 608 pages and features improved photographic detail, larger illustrations and an improved layout. 608pp.
