GERMAN ARTILLERY FROM 1871 TO 1914 Uniforms and Personal Equipment

£95.00

At the end of the 19th century the artillery, like almost no other branch of service, experienced rapid development. With the formation of the German Empire in 1871, unprecedented inventions and the consistent utilisation of developments in weapons technology such as smokeless powder, brisant shells and recoiling cannon made it clear that in the next large war heavy weapons would play a decisive role. In 1914 that time had come.
