The final chapter in our continuing Luger series is today’s book, The Parabellum is Back! While Sturgess’ three-volume encyclopedia covers the pistol through 1918 and Simson Lugers takes us through Weimar, that leaves a lot still to learn. Luger production continued in World War II, and afterwards under French occupation. After the demolition of the Mauser plant, things dried up until the late 1960s when a plan to put the Luger back into production took hold, and that is a story definitively covered by Baudino and van Vlimmeren in The Parabellum is Back!
