More than 75 years since the end of WWII and the names of companies such as Krupp and Rheinmetall-Borsig have entered the history books for the weaponry they produced. The German army went to war with some very advanced designs in artillery, especially anti-tank guns. However, it was the heavyweight designs which showed the engineering skills which went into producing the 35.5cm and 60cm calibre Karl-Gerät guns along with the enormous 80cm gun. This work charts how these weapons were developed and deployed to deal with fortifications such as the Maginot Line. This is a well-researched and presented book which progresses through the stages of the war from the Polish campaign of 1939 through to the last days. Illustrated with highly detailed artwork this book will be appreciated by modellers as a reference work. Historians of weaponry will find this a fascinating read and make use of it as a reference work, also.
