Artillery Through the Ages

Our introduction spread helps lay out our approach to such a broad theme.

Wood, Sinew, and Metal

Paul Leach looks at the leap from “large bows” to the torsion-powered artillery of Antiquity, and presents a Roman vs. Dacian scenario.

As walled towns and castles rose in importance, bigger and better ways of destroying the walls were sought. Jim Graham lifts the curtain on medieval artillery might.

Towards Tactical Mobility

Dr Stephen Summerfield explains how Horse Artillery went through plenty of growing pains during the Napoleonic Wars.

Bridge to the Future

The development of the artillery during the American Civil War would do the work of almost 100 years in a ferociously short four year span.

Imperial Long Shots

Neil Smith concludes our look at the development of artillery with the hop from the ACW to the European battlefields of 1914, by way of the deadly conflict between France and Prussia in 1870.
