Brilliant study about a nearly forgotten German officer of the German Imperial Armed Forces during World War One.
Colonel Bruchmueller did indeed invent modern fire-support. After a rather uneventfull career before the war he rose quickly to the job of the one specialist for offensive employment of artillery power in Germany.
In Riga 1917 he was first able to show the full potential of his theories. In 1918 he further refined these for the final German offensives in the west.
For a modern reader it is amazing how close his plans are to the ideas behind a modern effect matrix. His sequencing of effects and coordination of fires has influenced all modern armies.
A important book for all those interested in the history of artillery and everyone looking for the roots of modern effect planning.
