9781854861542: Early British Quick Firing Artillery: Field and Horse

A handbook for modellers and historians providing detailed scale plans, exploded drawings and a full description of the gun carriage design of the Boer Wars and World War I including limbers and ammunition wagons, sight development, wheel variations and harness details. This unique work explains in layman's terms the development of the long recoil system from the fixed gun carriage. It contains a mine of information from basic gun carriage design to details of limbers and ammunition wagons, all with their supplies and equipment carried, plus ammunition, fuzes and complete harness details. Profusely illustrated, the book lays bare the smallest mechanical details in outstanding cutaway and exploded line drawings allied to scaled sections. The result is an Aladdin's Cave for military artillery enthusiasts, whatever their period of interest. This is the nearest one can get to owning one's own gun.
