Chipotle Publishing, LLC launches Kickstarter campaign for new book:

THE VICKERS MACHINE GUN: PRIDE OF THE EMMA GEES

June 23, 2020: Chipotle Publishing, LLC has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new book. THE VICKERS MACHINE GUN: PRIDE OF THE EMMA GEES is a must-have for WWI, WWII and British history buffs as well as Vickers enthusiasts! The Vickers machine gun was such an integral part of the 20th century history that it is embedded in almost every history book of the two Great Wars. In 1994, historian and machine gunner Dolf L. Goldsmith followed up his history of the Maxim machine gun “The Devil’s Paintbrush” with the story of the Maxim’s progeny, the Vickers machine gun, titled “The Grand Old Lady of No Man’s Land.”

Now, a quarter of a century later, Dolf has participated in the upgrading of that massive book with over 270 more pages of new information, color photos and research by himself and 3 more Vickers historians: Richard Fisher, Robert G. Segel and Dan Shea. The new book will have a grand total of over 840 pages (plus any Stretch Goal book upgrades and additions achieved through the Kickstarter). 

2 hardcover versions of The Vickers Machine Gun: Pride of the Emma Gees are offered in the Kickstarter campaign:

  1. Retail Edition with a matte black & white Vickers photo montage casing and
  2. Kickstarter Exclusive Edition with a special vintage red & gold casing design.

Other pledge reward options include a limited edition patch & coin, copies signed by the author and all 3 contributing editors, the opportunity to put your name in a “Thank You” section at the back of the book and a coveted spot in a 6-person Vickers armorer course taught by contributing editor Dan Shea.

A series of Stretch Goals will be unlocked as the campaign meets its funding tier goals, such as improved paper stock quality, expanded author interview & photo sections and special design end papers.

Don’t miss being part of this exciting Kickstarter, where we go on an adventure with the Machine Gun Corps and follow the historical trail of the designers and the soldiers using the Vickers guns in almost every part of the planet. We cover accessories, oddities, strange stories and lore, and provide the most definitive work on the subject of the Vickers machine gun and its use that has ever been published.
