Researching method...

Researches... The   research   has   been   based   on   the   analysis   of   archives   as well as guns and accessories. The   authors   had   the   opportunity   of   studying   official   archives from   Nations   (Germany,   France,   Norway)   involved   in   the   Post WWII   development   and   use   of   the   Parabellum   as   well   as   the Mauser archives. The    direct    access    to    the    Paul    Mauser    and    Georg    Luger archives    help    the    authors    in    explaining    with    an    extensive amount   of   details   the   relationship   between   the   two   inventors. See . The   access   to   the   Mauser   Archive   from   Prof.   Dr.   Gminder   and to    the   Archive    of    Mr.    Görtz    provides    an    incredible    level    of details for the first time available. Thanks    to    the    complete    set    of    Blue    Prints    and    production sheets   the   complete   description   of   the   guns   compared   with   the previous productions is available. Frequent   visits   to   Oberndorf   meeting   the   people   involved   in   the post    WWII    Parabellum    development    provide    an    in-depth knowledge about all the small production details.
