Osprey Special Editions (Military) : American Civil War Artillery 1861-1865 : Field and Heavy Artillery

Perhaps the most influential arm of either army in the prosecution of the American Civil War, the artillery of both sides grew to be highly professional organizations. Because of the length of the coastline of the United States, from the beginning American ordnance placed an emphasis on its 'Heavy Artillery' mounted in coastal defenses, while their 'Field Artillery' units were assigned across the fighting fronts. In battle, the introduction of both the 12-pdr. Napoleon and rifled cannon provided a range and power previously unknown on American soil. Philip Katcher details the development and usage of this vital cog in the war-machine of both sides accompanied by illustrations by Tony Bryan.
