Review

WWII holsters are collectables in their own right. Knowing what is real and what is fake (or a reproduction) can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. This book will provide enough basic information to help you make an educated decision. --By W. Baumbeck -

Excellent book. Is somewhat dated because new WWII holsters were released from the old Soviet Union, but an incredibly valuable aid to the beginning holster collector! --By David W Heiser

About 200 holsters from private collections are photographed, front and back, and described as to material, construction, and markings. The most detailed part is on German manufactures (about a third of the book), with strong sections on Japan and Italy. The only color photos are about ten of Japanese holsters, for some reason. Many small countries receive some treatment, notably Sweden, Hungary, and Spain in some detail. Norway, the Netherlands, Canada, Iran, Poland, Portugal, France, and Finland have representation, but Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey have none. The photos are clear and well done. The text sometimes runs close to the binding, but this is a large size book on fine glossy paper and well manufactured --By Mark Conrad -

If you collect Allied or Axis WW2 pistols you must have this reference book both to identify what an orphan holster goes on or what holster to match up w/ your new pistol acquisition. Excellent pictures though they are B/W; clear and sharp. Dana
