This book is a fascinating illustrated record of German light and heavy artillery, heavy mortars, anti-tank and anti-aircraft guns, and self propelled mounted guns used by the German Army, Waffen SS and Luftwaffe during the Second World War, and provides an excellent pictorial account of the various German guns that were deployed for action between 1939 and 1945.
 
The book analyses the development of the German gun at war and shows how artllery became of decisive importance for the preparation and the successful conduct of operations, and throughout the book it depicts life as a gunner, how the guns were deployed for action, and illustrates the various modes of transport that were used to move the guns from one battle front to another (including how they were adapted on to the chassis of tanks and other vehicles)
 
The book is packed full with black and white photographs detailing German artillery of the period....
