Description:

The twentieth century was a time of near total transformation of artillery and the U.s. Army has been at the forefront of artillery use and development throughout that century. American troops fighting the Spanish in Cuba during the Spanish-American War were equipped with the 1885-model field gun; nearly, a century later American troops fielded an array of accurate, advanced and precise weapons systems during the Gulf War. This unique, pictorial history of American artillery and artillery units examines the weapons - from field guns to MLRS and TACMs - and the equipment utilized by American troops along with the uniforms and insignia of U.S. artillerymen. This invaluable study examines field artillery, coastal artillery, anti-aircraft and a diverse array of modern missile types and systems. Distant Thunder is a thorough guide to a crucial part of America's twentieth-century armed forces and an insight into the evolving world of modern artillery. 72 pages. Bookseller Inventory #
