Book published by Schiffer in 1997, 144 pages. Large softback - 28cm by 21cm (S6647)

This book provides a detailed history of the second largest arms manufacturer in Europe - the Skoda Works, and in particular, the 24cm Cannon, 38cm Howitzer, 42cm Howitzer and others that were manufactured there. Both the guns and modes of transport were so efficient that they not only played an important part in the First World War but in the Second World War as well. Illustrated throughout with over a hundred black and white photographs and line drawings, this book is a must read/reference for anyone interested in the history of artillery and heavy weapons, as well as a more general interest in the development and application of such weaponry over the last century

Condition of the book is generally good. The cover has some minor scuffs and blemishes, and some light nibbling and wear along the edges, but the spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound
