I am pleased to announce that our newest book, co-authored by me and Martin Rupp, is finally available for purchase. The book, World War II German Super-Heavy Siege Guns describes the design, development, and employment of the very large-calibre siege guns built by arms manufacturers Krupp and Rheinmetall, as well as the Czech-made Skoda pieces put into service by German Army. The book discusses artillery pieces that were 28cm or larger and used to destroy fortified targets: the 80cm Railway Gun Gustav-Gerät, the 60cm and 54cm self-propelled Karl-Gerät, the 35.5cm Haubitze M1, the World War I-era 28cm Haubitze L/12 and 28cm Küstenhaubitze L/12 pieces, and of course the 42cm Gamma-Gerät. Skoda guns covered in the book are the World War I-era 42cm howitzer and 30.5cm mortars. There is also lots of unit information in the book. The book’s artwork is based on the computer-generated models of Greg Heuer, my co-author for Railway Guns of World War I. A talented 3D computer modeler, Greg’s work served as the basis of the illustrations made for the World War I railway gun book, and Greg again kindly let us use his superbly detailed computer models for this new book. Particularly impressive are Greg’s models of the pre-production prototypes of the 60cm Karl-Gerät and the two views of the 80cm Gustav-Gerät being assembled.

Regards, Marc

For anyone interested in coastal artillery on the Baltic, there is an excellent new Polish book on "Coastal Artillery on the Polish Shores: Compendium and Guide" by Jacek Jarosz (text is entirely Polish). Since Poland absorbed East Prussia and a chunk of the German Baltic coast in 1945, much of the coverage deals with German batteries from the 20th Century. It covers Polish coastal artillery in the Gdynia-Hel region to 1939, then covers post-war Polish defenses including guns, anti-ship missile sites and SAM sites. The primary focus of the book is to serve as a guide to surviving structures. There is a short survey at the beginning about the various weapons used. The book is very heavily illustrated with color photos of surviving sites. I got my copy from Fortress Books in the Netherlands.
