The 25-pounder Gun/Howitzer

The 25-pounder was rightly famous: it was capable of firing at direct and indirect targets and could also serve as an antitank gun. It is rare that such a versatile weapon is effective, but this gun did all that it was planned to do - with the additional role of antitank weapon. This reprint is of the last full edition of the 25-pounder handbook issued in the war (August 1944) and describes in detail the Marks II and III guns, together with their ammunition. As the most effective British field gun of the war, it served in all theatres in various guises, and it did its job superbly. Not to be missed by all artillery and antitank collectors and readers.
