The Owen Gun Files - Front Cover

Front Cover


Evelyn Owen's Australian submachine gun was conceived originally in Wollongong, NSW.

The weapon bearing his name became famous in the New Guinea campaigns of World War II for its effectiveness and ability to withstand rough treatment. Between the concept and realisation however, there lies in the public mind a morass of controversy, misinformation and myth.

The purpose of this extraordinarily well researched book is to establish, from contemporary records, the real story of Owen and the development of the gun.
