Synopsis

World War I is often deemed to have been 'a war of artillery'; British heavy artillery played a vital part in destroying the German trenches and providing invaluable cover for advancing troops on the Western Front. This book details the huge guns of the Royal Garrison Artillery, including the 6-in. siege gun and howitzer, the 8-in. howitzer, the 12-in. railway and siege howitzer and the infamous 9.2-in breech-loading siege howitzer. Camouflage and enemy battery locations and transport are covered, as well as how the guns were developed, how they were manned and how tactics were used.

Dale Clarke has just completed a War in History MA at the Institute for the Study of War and Society at De Montfort University and is about to start a PhD on Early Modern English fortifications. He also works as a TA staff officer on attachment to the Directorate of Corporate Communications (Army) at the MOD. Previously he has worked as an armourer and technical advisor for film and television with credits including 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin'. Brian Delf began his career working in a London art studio producing artwork for advertising and commercial publications. Since 1972, he has worked as a freelance illustrator on a variety of subjects including natural history, architecture and technical cutaways. Some of his recently illustrated books have been published in over thirty countries. Brian lives and works in Oxfordshire.
