Osprey New Vanguard 76 : Napoleon's Guns (2) 1792-1815 : Heavy and Siege Artillery

This book is the second half of the story of the French artillery during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. It covers the howitzers, mortars and large siege (16- and 24-pdrs) and garrison (8- and 12-pdrs) guns, placing a special emphasis on their role, technical significance and operational use. The introduction of the Gribeauval system put in place a collection of mortars and large guns that were lighter and more manageable than those previously used, while offering first class hitting power. Text by Rene Chartrand with illustrations by Ray Hutchins.
