In detailed and thorough passages, Hogg presents key data such as length, weight, muzzle velocity and range for each handgun. Further, he includes the date of introduction and service record of each and evaluates and discusses peculiarities of their designs. For those with an interest in the field of German handguns, this book would serve as a handy guide.
