American Field Artillery 1930-1939

Roberts, Larry Don
Abstract
The majority of military history deals with the various wars in which man has been involved. Little literature exists describing the conditions and problems of an army during peacetime. This work describes the conditions in. which the Field Artillery existed during the 1930s and analyzes some of the :forces affecting it. The lingering effects of the World War, the financial impact of the depression and the advance of technology exerted tremendous influence on the Field Artillery in that decade. The response to the problems caused by these forces qetermined the eff iciency of the branch when war came again.
