06/12/2019: London's Armed Police - Up Close and Personal

London’s Armed Police – Up close and personal
by Stephen Smith
Published by Pen and Sword History

This book provides a fantastic insight from an ex-firearms officer who provides a very fact based look into key major events that have helped mould the current armed police teams in London. It does not glorify or provide excuses, just pure facts written in a very easy-to-read style.

It covers the earliest armed chase through London, gang culture from the 70’s to present day and the challenges that face the terrorist threats they currently face.

It also covers the technology, tools and clothing that has been developed to meet the demands of modern-day policing.

If you want to understand and appreciate what these teams do it’s a must read.
