Best books on the AK-47

Greetings,

What are the best books--most detailed, accurate and information laden--on the AK-47?

Thanks,
Alan

I would NOT recommend "The Gun" by C. J. Chivers. Although the author is a Pulitzer Prize winner and the book is fairly well known I thought the book was all over the place talking a LOT about Gatling and Maxim and a lot of stuff not directly related to the AK.

Vickers Guide. Yes. That looks like exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks for the tip.

I like Dr. Clinton Ezell's book on the AK (The Story of the AK-47?). There's another good one, but it escapes me right now.
