Riassunto: Using the authors collection of museum quality miniature cannons, the book shows full color photos of 98 cannons in chronological order, dating from the mythical Stone Age cannon of King Oog, through the pregunpowder age of catapults and trebuchets to the earliest cannons using gun powder and then through the various types of naval, field artillery, mortars and fortress guns, ending with the gigantic "Dora" of World War 11, which basically ended the cannon age.
