Item Description...
Determined to learn from the lessons of World War I where it was unprepared and heavily reliant on British and French guns, the US Army developed a whole new generation of field artillery weapons and tactics during the 1930s. Consequently, in World War II it was the clear leader in field artillery.

Providing a thorough examination of the many critical innovations and doctrines, and the impact they had on performance in combat, this book demonstrates why US field artillery was so effective in World War II. Innovations featured include the motorization of artillery, which increased mobility; fire direction centers, which enhanced their firepower; aerial observation; and radio communications.

Exploring, in their entirety, the weapons that formed the backbone of the US artillery arsenal in World War II, this book reveals a wealth of detail not readily available elsewhere.
"The author does a wonderful job of describing American Field Artillery in World War II." -J. E. Kauffman, Site-O

Highly recommended." -Frank De Sisto, missing-lynx.com

"Steven J. Zaloga is well known for his expertise in things military and he shares that with us in this volume, in a highly readable and interesting presentation... This is all superbly illustrated by Brian Delf with some excellent color illustrations in the center of the book of nearly all the weapons covered in the body of the work. This is further enhanced by a fine selection of period images. It all comes together in a book of excellent quality and one that you can buy with confidence." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Essential to any in-depth coverage of the equipment and strategies of the times.  Apr 10, 2007
Steven J. Zaloga's US FIELD ARTILLERY OF WORLD WAR II tells of a new generation of field artillery weapons and tactics born in the 1930s and used in World War II. With vintage photos and plenty of technical detail, US FIELD ARTILLERY OF WORLD WAR II provides a fine survey essential to any in-depth coverage of the equipment and strategies of the times.
 
a concise review of an underappreciated arm of service...  Apr 2, 2007
The Field Artillery arm was one of the few areas that the US Army started out ahead of the Axis powers and stayed there. The Germans occasionally had bigger cannons, but the US system of command, fire control, and mobility allowed the American Army to mass fires from several units on a single target within minutes of receiving a request from front-line units. In this book Mr. Zaloga takes a technical look at the US Army's Field Artillery arm with much of the focus being on the weapons used. I ususal Osprey style the detailed text is supported by multiple photos, charts and several full-color drawings. The result is a one-stop reference on the guns and tactics used in WW2. The book is easy to read and well organized, the author is a recognized expert in military affairs and the price is quite attractive. Highly recommended to military historians, WW2 buffs, wargamers, and model-builders.
