Army Ordnance 1917 - 1919 History Of Rifles, Revolvers, And Pistols (1920) - A serious examination of the small arms used by American Troops in World War I.  Excellent history given - thoroughly discussing the M1903 Springfield, and the M1917 Enfield - followed by a comparison of the strength and weaknesses of each. Also included are the costs of production, design criteria, development history and production problems, etc.  An excellent overview of the development, design, production requirements, capabilities, and cost for the Colt's M1911 pistol is discussed.  Additionally, information is provided concerning the use of the Smith & Wesson Caliber .45 revolver, and the problems associated with the Caliber .38 revolver in combat.  Several comparison charts are provided showing use, numbers, and disposition of the various small arms.  Several pictures of the previously discussed firearms are presented - "Click" HERE to see PAGE 36.  This 8.5" X 11" size pamphlet is 36 pages in length and is stapled.  All writing and pictures are clear and detailed.  I have seen printed manuals go for well over $20.00 each that are about half the printed size on 6" X 9" paper.  If you just want the facts with excellent charts and pictures, you can purchase this pamphlet at about one third the price.
