About the Book
The history of the vz. 52 and vz.52/57 rifles is far more dynamic than the rifles themselves. While they had a limited service life with Czechoslovakia, the vz. 52 series rifles have continuously fought around the war throughout the last half of the 20th century and into the beginning of the 21st. This revised edition covers the history, usage, identification, operation, and maintenance of the vz. 52 and vz.52/57 rifles commonly found today.
