for referrence to handgun issues I like The Handgun by Geoffry Boothroyd(I think that's the correct spelling). The book is a bit dated now, but for dealings in the 1960's all the info should be pretty well spot on.
That or you could just keep asking questions around here.
A lot of the guys around here can tell you pretty well anything relating to military history because they lived it (not me). Berto, Al and many others are Vietnam vets and Pistolenschutze was actually a private in the good ole war of 1812
. I mention it because for the benefit of the (ahem) chronologically advanced members, you might try a larger font size, bi-focals can only do so much....................
