Blitzkrieg, heavier tanks and faster aircraft forced the fighting powers in World War II to develop new guns and techniques to meet rapidly changing tactical demands. In great detail and with a wealth of illustration Ian Hogg surveys the development and use of artillery during that conflict. This book is a comparative study of the guns of all the combatant nations and its main emphasis is on those of Britain, the United States, Germany and the Soviet Union.
