Re: Ian Hogg's book on german artillery

Specific request: does the book cover the use of optics for the German 15cm FH18 Howitzer ?

I am interested to know in the operation of the model 34 periscopic/panoramic sight as installed in the howitzer...

how it was sighted thru it, how it was calibrated in relation to the main spotting position, azimuth readings, etc etc.

If Ian's book covers it, I am willing to buy it as I have already two different books by Schiffer Publishing by the same author on german heavy field artilery and are not detailed enough..

best regards
