Since 1914 the king of the battlefield has not been the tank or the machine gun, but the artillery piece. Although its position as the most lethal conventional weapons system on the battlefield is now being threatened by aircraft dropping smart bombs, artillery can still influence a battle’s outcome. All types of artillery pieces built from 1914 to the present day – from field guns to anti-tank weapons and anti-aircraft guns – are included in Artillery. Each individual entry describes the weapon’s development, unique design features and combat capabilities, with detailed specification boxes providing accurate and exhaustive information on each piece, including range, crew details, ammunition, dimensions and muzzle velocity. Many entries also include full colour artworks of the weapons, as well as colour and black-and-white photographs of the weapon in action. With its detailed descriptions and illustrations, Artillery is an invaluable guide to the key artillery pieces of the last hundred years.
