The ultimate guide to the artillery of the Western Allies Packed with technical detail Covers field, heavy, coastal, anti-aircraft and anti-tank artillery This comprehensive encyclopedia provides an illustrated and highly detailed account of the guns used by the Allied armies of the West in all theatres in World War II. In contrast to the diversity of German weaponry, Allied artillery development was a story of gradual improvement and solid technical advance. Ingenuity and good mechanical design were the chief characteristics of this evolution and the result was an increasing arsenal of steady, reliable and successful artillery. Ian Hogg brings to the subject a depth of knowledge and understanding based on years of experience and study. The book is divided into sections on field and medium artillery, heavy and super-heavy artillery, anti-tank and anti-aircraft guns, railway artillery, coastal guns and recoilless artillery. For each weapon described there is a service history, together with the author? incisive comments on performance, and detailed technical data. Accepted as the standard work on the subject, and a companion to German Artillery of World War II, this book is now available again in a revised edition. Ian V. Hogg, a former editor of Jane's, is a respected authority on all aspects of weaponry and is the author of numerous books including German Artillery of World War II, German Secret Weapons of the Second World War and The Greenhill Military Small Arms Data Book.
