First published way back in 1975, Ian Hogg's reference on German Artillery remains, in my opinion, the best reference there is to this day about the guns and ammunition used by the German armed forces in WW2. Originally published then by Arms and Armour Press, it has been difficult and often expensive to find in recent years. Great news then that Frontline Books, part of Pen and Sword Books, have re-printed it in a paperback format. The book is organised into section covering the Organisation of German Artillery in WW2, then splits into Infantry, Mountain, Field, Heavy Field, Heavy, Railway, Anti-Aircraft, Anti-Tank, Coastal and Recoilless Artillery. The appendices cover Ammunition, Ammunition Markings, Identification of German Artillery Cartridge Cases, Fremdengerat (an intelligence list of foreign weapons with designations) and finally an explanation of the Wehrkreis Organisation in Germany. Each gun has technical details and brief history, along with photos wherever possible. If you want to find out about any German artillery piece, this really is still the best place to do it. Over the last thirty years we have seen lots of new information emerge on WW2 but this remains a great reference for your bookshelf. Military Modelling Online
