Artillerymen regard the shell as the weapon, the gun as merely the means of getting it to the target. This book is all about shells - from 20mm to 240mm. It looks at every type of shell within each calibre, and is comprehensively illustrated with section drawings of these shells, many of which are in colour. If you want to know what American gunners were firing at the enemy, and the real detail to boot, then this is the book for you! A very valuable adition to any military library and a very detailed reference textbook.
