New book on Skoda Heavy Artillery
Permalink   


Hello, my name is Alexandru Bucur, and I've recently illustrated a book on the Skoda built siege guns in the collection of the Military Museum of Bucharest.

I am a long time follower (if first time poster) of this site and forum and made extensive use of the information contained within during my research for this book and as such feel it is my duty to give something back to the community in the form of my drawings.

The book itself is the fifth title in an ongoing collection published by the National Military Museum of Romania and follows the standard layout of 80 pages, with 80 black and white photographs and eight colour plates.
The main text in unfortunately in Romanian, but bilingual captions on all the illustrations as well as an in-depth summary are provided in English.

The book is available for purchase only in the Military Museum building, and as such can't be bought over the internet, but the eight aforementioned plates can be seen on my private gallery:

The cover:
