German Artillery of World War One

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

World War I was a turning point in warfare as the war became not a series of sieges and set-piece battle, but a static stand-off punctuated by attacks on the line as each side tried to break the stalemate. The war saw artillery used on a hitherto unprecedented scale, and in this illustrated book, the author details the weapons used by the German Army. Starting with the development in German artillery up to 1914, the book goes on to describe in detail the field artillery - light guns, and light and heavy howitzers - that were used, before covering heavy mortars and long-range guns. Specialist weapons for mountain, coastal, railway and fortress use are covered, as are specialist engineer and infantry guns.

Herbert Jager is a retired lieutenant-colonel of the German Army and a civil engineer, and a Vice President of the German Artillery Study Group. An expert on German artillery of 1860-1918, he has translated several books on weaponry subjects into German.

This is the 2009 hardback edition of the 2001 publication. The book is in extremely good condition, the binding is sound and all the pages are clean and unmarked. The dustjacket is clean and unmarked, the book appears virtually as new.
