One day a prehistoric guy picked up a rock and threw it--and the history of weapons began. Comedy writer and weapon nerd John O'Bryan bring us the freaky highlights of man's centuries-old obsession with weaponry.

From butterfly swords to bo staffs, the only history of weapons you'll ever want. John O'Bryan hilariously explains weapons like the Bola, Atlatl, Khopesh, Aspis, Falx, Tomahawk, and Flaming Pigs (for real), while delivering real content about history, uses and badass potential.

Stories about Attila the Hun, Genghis Khan, the 'peaceful' Shaolin monks and the ass-whipping Rajput's of India compliment fun sidebars like 'So You Want to Sieze a Fortified City.' Each entry features an illustration of the weapon, either on its own or in action.

A smart package and a great price point complete a book that will elicit a nerdy gasp of appreciation from anyone who can still make good explosion noises.
