Military historians and students of artillery technology will appreciate this illustrated field guide to all the types of mobile (wheeled) field artillery used by US military forces (Army, Navy, Marine Corps) in the modern era. Covering the period from 1875 and the first breechloading rifled guns through types adopted during the Korean War, the book profiles field and infantry artillery, mountain guns, siege artillery, anti-tank guns, and naval landing guns. Each type of gun is described in text, drawings, and photos and includes a history of the type's development, major features, production, combat use, and comments about surviving examples. The book is a valuable reference for those caring for or collecting these kinds of weapons. It is the first comprehensive guide to American mobile artillery ever to be published.
