To all serious students of the final phase of World War One, colonel Georg Bruchmüller was a well-known name: "Durchbruchmüller" ("Breakthrough-Müller") as he was fondly called by his German compatriots and Austro-Hungarian allies was the unsurpassed maestro of scientific artillery coordination in the offensive battles of the Central Powers from 1916 onwards, which regularly achieved this most precious and elusive result of World War One offensives: the breakthrough. David T. Zebecki is an experienced U.S. artillery officer himself, and he is due our thanks for having written this excellent and concise military biography of an outstanding man and a clear description of his methods. As recent fighting in Eastern Ukraine and Syria has shown, Georg Bruchmüller is still very much part of our present realities. One disregards his biography at one's peril.
