This is a detailed survey, replete with photographs and diagrams, of the field artillery used by both sides in the Civil War. In paperback for the first time, the book provides technical descriptions of the artillery (bore, weight, range, etc.), ordnance purchases, and inspection reports. Appendixes provide information on surviving artillery pieces and their current locations in museums and national parks.

Industry Reviews

"The standard reference work on its subject: an important addition to any institutional or personal Civil War library and a significant contribution to knowledge." Civil War History "This masterful work on Civil War field artillery was written by a team of authors--a physician, a skilled mechanic, and a professional engineer, each a longtime student of the war. The book is at once informative, entertaining, and useful." Blue & Gray Magazine
