Vol. II No. 3
Cover: During the Middle Ages when battle was waged on a man-to-man basis and the chief weapon was the sword, the armorers of ancient Toledo in Spain made the finest, most flexible, most durable of them all. The possession of a “Toledo Blade” was a source of pride to those ancient warriors and are treasured items today among collector’s trophies. The Martin Baltimore is such a weapon in modern warfare – sturdy, reliable, capable of downing a worthy foe when in the hands of a competent fighter. The cover was photographed in Kodachrome over the Martin airport by W. Neal. Siebold, Star staff photographer. ……. Articles Inside: … Learned the Hard Way ( G. T. Willey ) …..
