This title is the first of two volumes examining the artillery equipment of the British forces during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, along with Wellington's campaigns in India. Throughout this period the British Army used both foot and horse artillery, generally using either the nine pounder gun or the 5.5 inch field howitzer. Also covered are the smaller field guns in the three and six pounder categories and the largest, the 12 pounder field gun. Wellington's campaigns in India were often conducted in conjunction with the armies of the Honourable East India Company, including the Bengal Horse Artillery. This title covers the design and development of the guns, the organization of the troops and their operational histories.
