Today’s book is Pistols of World War I, by Robert J. Adamek. It’s a good overview of all the significant handguns used by combatants on both sides of the war (90 pistols among 16 countries). There isn’t a whole lot of description and history for each individual gun, but they do each have statistics on production and adoption quantities, dimensioned sketches of cartridges and magazines, and basic disassembly instructions.
Only a thousand copies were originally printed, but you can find them for sale on Amazon:
At Forgotten Weapons I think the most interesting guns out there are the most obscure ones. I try to search out experimental and prototype weapons and show you how they work, in addition to more conventional guns that you may not have heard of before. You’re much more likely to find a video on the Cei Rigotti or Webley-Fosbery here than an AR or Glock. So, do you want to learn about something new today? Then stick around!
