Civil War Heavy Explosive Ordnance

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

Civil War Heavy Explasive Ordnance is the definitive reference book on Union and Confederate large caliber artillery projectiles, torpedoes, and mines. Some of these projectiles are from the most famous battles of the Civil War, such as those at Fort Sumter, Charleston, Vicksburg, and Richmond. Others were fired from famous cannon, such as the ""Swamp Angel"" of Charleston and ""Whistling Dick"" of Vicksburg. And some were involved in torpedo attacks against major warships. Jack Bell covers more than 360 projectiles from public and private collections in smoothbore calibers of thirty-two-pounder and up, rifled projectiles of four-inch caliber and larger, and twenty-one Union and Confederate torpedoes and mines. Each data sheet shows multiple views of the projectile or torpedo (using more than one thousand photos) with data including diameter, weight, gun used to fire it, rarity index, and provenance. This comprehensive volume will be of great interest to Civil War historians museum curators, field archaeologists, private collectors dealers, and consultants on unexploded ordnance.
