From the formation of volunteer artillery units in the 1850s to gunners serving in Vietnam and the Gulf War, this is the story of men and women. While the technical capabilities of the guns are important, ultimately the effectiveness of fire support rests on the expertise and bravery of the gunners themselves. Drawing on diaries and letters, much of the story is told through the experiences of the gunners themselves, letting the reader know what it was like to be a gunner - in barracks, on the gun-line, in bringing forward ammunition or in observing fire.
