The book is divided into sections: infantry, mountain, and field artillery; heavy field artillery and heavy artillery; railway artillery, including the legendary 'Dora'; antitank and antiaircraft guns; coastal artillery; and recoilless artillery. Each section is fully illustrated and technical details and data are presented on each individual type and model.

Comments from readers

bulletLawrence M. Bloodgood says: This is the Best Book on German Artillery of World War II that I have read so far. It covers all artillery from small guns to the biggest Railway and coastal Guns. The technical Data is great and the pictures are very good. It also covers those that were designed but never used in World War II. This is the book for the person that wants to know all about German Artillery in World War II.
bulletThis book gives historical as well as technical knowledges about German artillery pieces of WWII. And there are lots of photos of them to help reader's understandings. The only regret is there is no chapters for German mortars and rockets of contemparary era. This book, however, should be the best reference to understand German artillery of WWII beyond amateur levels.
