From the Publisher:

LUGERS of Ralph Shattuck appeals to anyone who is interested in World War I or World War II. It holds your interest from beginning to end and is a wonderfully well written book with exciting stories and facts regarding the use and design of the German Luger.

Unlike any pistol ever designed, the romantic fascination with the luger's design and look is rivaled only by the Wester 6-shooter of Sam Colt. The unique variations, designs and uses of the Luger provide collectors world wide with a never ending quest to identify each variation and collect them. Its a must for anyone interested in information about German Lugers. And its complete with an up to date value guide for the serious collector!
