The publisher has produced a very large number of ‘centenary books’ to mark the hundred years since the Great War, with this series being an important and popular contribution. Within the series this new book is a worthy addition. The First World War was really the third global conflict, but the first to introduce total industrial carnage – Very Highly Recommended.

Artillery pieces tend to be very long and not very high so, rather smartly, the designers of this book have used a letterbox format that perfectly suits the subject. [i]Heavyweights[/i] is also a high quality production, with fine, glossy paper and copious illustrations throughout.
