Russell C. Keep III is a noted attorney on Hilton Head Island, SC and holds a Literary Degree in English from the University of South Carolina. He has collected and personally enjoyed numerous weapons from all major military wars and battles. His love for the German Luger and the historical background of this truly interesting weapon prompted Mr. Keep to author LUGERS of Ralph Shattuck. Recent publications over the past 20 years failed to blend the historical value of its design and evolution with its commercial and military usage. In addition, it was an opportunity to present and showcase many of the truly rare Lugers that have only been known to exist in private collections. Thanks to Ralph and Nancy Shattuck, noted collectors and appraisers of World of Lugers, Mr. Keep was able to author this book in a manner that provided not only a rare insight into its historical use but a truly unique revelation into its design and evolution that was dictated ironically by the great conflicts of war.
