Rate this:
World War II was the railway gun's technological zenith. As well as the advanced German types, this book surveys the railway guns that all combatants either developed, improvised, or fielded - France, Belgium, Italy, Finland, the USSR, Japan, Britain and the USA - and explains the diverse roles that they played throughout the conflict. With new color recreations of the most important railway guns of the war, this is the story of how these weapons reached their peak just before ballistic missiles made them obsolete.
