• The Beretta M9 Pistol (Weapon)

    In 1990 the Beretta M9 replaced the venerable Colt 1911 as the main pistol of choice for the US Army. At the time the decision was controversial particularly because it was perceived that a smaller caliber weapon such as the Beretta would lack the necessary stopping power and range in comparison to the .45 caliber Colt. The situation was not helped by the rumour that the adoption of this Italian designed pistol was in exchange for the creation of US missile bases within Italy. Nonetheless, the Beretta, although not a perfect pistol, has since proved many of its distractors wrong with widespread use in Iraq and Afghanistan. Written by a leading pistol expert who currently trains US Special Forces in the use of this weapon, this book is an honest appraisal of the successes and failings of the Beretta design. The volume traces the Beretta designs, which preceded the M9 as well as its use on the battlefield, including the impact it has had on close combat training due to the larger magazine capacity. It also details the adoption of the Beretta by US law enforcement agencies and the impact this has had. This is a fascinating history of a classic pistol and its future use.

  • Modern Beretta Firearms

    The focus of this book is confined to those Beretta firearms that were developed after Pietro Beretta took over the firm in 1903, an event which, as related in Chapter 1, marks the real beginning of Beretta in the 20th century. The story of Beretta's firearms of the 20th century leads naturally to an overview of all the Beretta-made weapons, both old and new. It takes us beyond Italy, to nearly a dozen countries where Beretta-designed military firearms have been built, and to other nations where these fine weapons have been put to use. This book delves into the Beretta story and discovers how remarkable events and personalities shaped Beretta firearms as they are today.

  • The World of Beretta: An International Legend
