The distinctive look of the Luger and its role in German military history make it perhaps the world's most treasured handgun. Tracing the history of the Parabellum-Pistole (as the Luger was also known), John Walter details the initial collaboration between Hugo Borchardt and Georg J. Luger, who patented the design in 1898; how the Imperial German Navy adopted the use of the sidearm; and why the U.S. Army passed on it following field trials in favor of the Colt, only to have the Luger become a prized trophy for Allied soldiers in the world wars.
