The P08 Luger Pistol

Author(s): Guus De Vries; Bas Martens


The third volume of the Propaganda Photo Series, a unique series of books on World War II small arms. Each volume covers all essential information on history & development, ammunition & accessories, codes & markings and contains photos of nearly every model and accessory.

The most important quality of the Propaganda Photo Series however, is a unique selection of original German World War II propaganda photos, most never published before. The combination of solid information and original photos makes the Propaganda Photo Series the most extensive and reliable source of German small arms "in-use," depicting the weapons and equipment as they were actually used.

The P08 Luger pistol is probably the most famous pistol ever and has been the subject of a long list of publications. This book gives a concise history of the pistol (including production, codes and markings), its variants and accessories, but also offers new information on stocks, magazines and intended successors. Many new and special pictures.
