"Gunpowder Armies" examines the use of gunpowder by military forces from the mid-16th century to the late 19th century. It includes both European and colonial conflicts. There are twenty-two full-page colour plates accompanied by a detailed and informative description of the illustration exploring the development of gunpowder weapons.
The artwork is produced by a variety of artists like Angus McBride, Richard Hook, and features some of the finest military artists in the world today. Major conflicts such as the Battle of Culloden, the French-Indian War in North America, the American Revolution, the Napoleonic Wars, and the American Civil War are all included, amongst others.
