Glad to oblige.  I should have thought of that section myself.  Thanks for getting me on track!

My guess is "fopield" was meant to be "field".

Carl. I love this forum. You have done a great job with it. Very informative with lots of very knowledgeable members. I also like that it is focused primarily on projectiles. Some forums are so big you cannot keep up with all the post. Things slip by. Also thank you for adding the suggested reading section. I think that could help new comers in the future.

My first artillery book. It is a good starter book.

Your Honor,
   You got to dumb it down a little. what is a fopield find? Sir? Also is that invite to come to your chambers and see some of your shells still open. I would love to come see them.

Still waiting on Jack's new artillery book.  Isn't it supposed to be along the lines of his Confederate Bowie Knife book?

Mike the the base of a 100lb Parrot incendiary shell I found near Chester Va. I was also present when a whole ground burst 100lber was found. Hope that helps expand the location of fopield finds. Gary

Some were homemade. The Confederates tried to remove Bormann fuses and mix into the shells pieces of port fire and bursting charge of powder to fire at Yankee ships passing Vicksburg.

PS:  My wish is that the book could be updated in 2018 with color pictures.

This is a great starter book and as Divedigger says it has a good selection of artillery in it.  Probably along with the Thomas bullet book is the least expensive but useful reference book you can buy on bullets or shells.  Everyone should have one.  And with Jack's photography work you know the images are good.
