The Age of Artillery

There is still a lot of thinking on the First World War founded in the realm of post war myth. Many of us grew up with this myth created by many sources as a world, shattered by the immensity of the sacrifice all nations had faced, tried to find scapegoats and understand the reasons why these events had happened. These pages represent a collection of references and material that I hope will help readers to understand the roles of artillery in the First World War.

There are many views on what exactly broke the impasse that was trench warfare, but modern theories pay due regard to the importance of artillery, and the lessons learned on how to employ its destructive power, in resolving the dilemma of defence.

These pages could of course just help to inspire someone in their modelling or 'gaming.

Interesting articles.
