A good primer on basic artillery equipment and tactics; these books were written by authors that have long been acknowledged as masters in their field (Brian Davis wrote a title on German uniforms, Kenneth Macksey one on tank tactics, etc.). This volume is no different, and Bidwell's other books on artillery are well-known. This volume provides a very good grounding in basic concepts, with good illustrations and definitions. The text gets a little colloquial at times - the comparison of British grand strategy to American football may strain credulity a little, but it's a workable definition. Other slang such as "small beer" is a bit baffling to North American sensibility. Overall, well worth having and hasn't really been matched by other comparable works, not even by the steadily increasing stable of Osprey titles.
