Artillery was the decisive weapon of the Great War – it dominated the battlefields. Yet the history of artillery during the conflict has been neglected, and its impact on the fighting is inadequately understood. Paul Strong and Sanders Marble, in this important and highly readable study, seek to balance the account. Their work shows that artillery was central to the tactics of the belligerent nations throughout the long course of the conflict, in attack and in defence. They describe, in vivid detail, how in theory and practice the use of artillery developed in different ways among the opposing armies, and they reveal how artillerymen on all sides coped with the extraordinary challenges that confronted them on the battlefield.
Useful for undergraduates or interested amateurs keen to get an overview of this sometimes intimidating subject and will probably become the book even more advanced scholars turn to first when seeking a quick summary of the role of artillery in the First World War.Journal of the Society for Army Historical Research
