About the Author
Henry C. Brown Jr was born and raised in North Carolina. He holds a B.S. from East Carolina University in History, a M.A. from Appalachian State University in Education and an A.S. from Wayne Community College. Married to his college sweetheart and father of three lovely daughters, he spends his days working in his wife’s dental practice. As a certifiable history fanatic he has travelled in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and North America visiting historic sites from the Bronze Age to the Second World War. Mr. Brown is a long-time member of the 6th NC American Revolution re-enactment group, a friend of Fort Ticonderoga, member of the Buffalo Bill Museum, a member of Colonial Williamsburg’s Duke of Gloucester Society, and a volunteer at Historic Halifax NC State Historic Site. Cameron S. White, Ph.D. grew up in central Kansas, but he has spent most of his adult life living in Nebraska. After receiving a B.A. in Psychology, Summa Cum Laude from the University of Kansas, he went on to earn a M.A. and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Nebraska. Currently Dr. White lives in Lincoln, Nebraska where he works as a private practice psychologist. Dr. White has always been a student of firearms, especially 20th century semi-automatic military pistols. He is especially interested in Makarov and Tokarev pistols. His other interests include history and American literature. Dr. White writes about the firearms he has studied when he is not working or spending time with his wife and three children.

The book provides a fascinating insight into the pistol's development and adoption by the Russians. It also covers the pistol be licensed to be manufactured in East Germany. The East German's made some adaptations of their own but stuck to the basic design. The book does not go into the Bulgarian or Chinese licensing for manufacture, nor does it cover the independently designed pistols made by Poland, Hungary, or Czechoslovakia that chambered the 9mm Makarov.
The book is a good addition to the library of firearms historians who are interested in Soviet Era weapons.
