This is a great starter book and as Divedigger says it has a good selection of artillery in it.  Probably along with the Thomas bullet book is the least expensive but useful reference book you can buy on bullets or shells.  Everyone should have one.  And with Jack's photography work you know the images are good.
Best,
Carl

Still waiting on Jack's new artillery book.  Isn't it supposed to be along the lines of his Confederate Bowie Knife book?

My first artillery book. It is a good starter book.
It's not always "Survival of the fitest" sometimes the idiots get through.
