The newest volume in the Army Lineage Series, The Organizational History of Field Artillery addresses the need for a modern work recording the historical structure, strength, disposition, materiel, and technical and tactical doctrine of field artillery in the U.S. Army. Although several books on field artillery have appeared over the past thirty years-some popular histories and a few scholarly works-this one is intended to emphasize the organizational structure of the branch rather than its weapons or operations. The publication includes charts and tables showing the organization of field artillery over the last 225 years, as well as photographs and artwork depicting artillerymen and their weapons in both war and peace. The book was designed to complement the volume published in 1985 in the series covering the lineages and honors of Regular Army and Army Reserve field artillery regiments, which is currently being updated to include commands, brigades, groups, and regiments in all three components. This updated edition will also be published by the Center of Military History. Taken together, these volumes will provide an unparalleled portrait of one of the Army's basic combat arms as it has evolved over the past two hundred fifty years.
