Sinister, mysterious, credited with vast influence and great wealth... who was this man who evoked such fierce passions that he was branded the 'Merchant of Death', a man who had risen from obscure origins in Asia Minor to control a worldwide empire? His trade was arms, anything that fired, floated, submerged and - later - flew. His life spanned the muzzle-loading musket and the prototype Spitfire.
