Twentieth-century Artillery brings together 300 of the most important examples of artillery used or designed between 1900 and the year 2000. Beginning with the guns that pounded the trenches in World War I, the book details all the major forms of artillery in service throughout the century. From hand-held anti-tank devices, anti-aircraft guns and field pieces of World War II to the recent tactical and strategic missiles, Twentieth-century Artillery provides a wide survey of the development and use of artillery, with the entries conveniently placed into categories for easy reference.
Each artillery piece featured is illustrated by a full-colour artwork and accompanied by a detailed specifications table giving the country of origin and technical details of the weapon, including where appropriate the calibre, elevation, muzzle velocity, traverse and range, all measurements being provided in imperial and metric. Each entry also contains a piece of text summarizing the weapon’s development and service history.
