About The Great War with 6 comments by BDIZZLE356 on Feb 4th, 2014

Canon de 155 L Modèle 1877

At the start of the Great War, the French Army had put an enormous amount of faith in their famous "75". It was indeed a formidable gun, but it soon became apparent that even this Gun could not perform all the tasks needed, especially when the war turned static and fixated around entrenchments rather than maneuver. Heavier guns were needed.

This forced the French Army to use older or even obsolete guns, in a desperate effort to fill the gap, and to provide the troops with much needed heavy Fire Support. That is the reason why the 155mm Cannon Mle 1877 was kept in service, despite its obvious age, shown primarily by its rigid mount on a "Napoleon-style" carriage. The lack of a modern system of Recoil meant, among other things, that the gun had to be relaid after each shot, greatly reducing the rate of fire. The Mle 1877 could shoot a 40kg (881b) shell up to a maximum range of 9.8km, which was quite acceptable. The Breech was of the De Bange screw type, and the gun was fired using a Friction Device.





Canon de 155 C modèle 1917 Schneider

The 155mm Howitzer by Schneider, was the principal heavy howitzer piece of the French Army during the Great War. It started as a private enterprise, the design being made by Schneider to get a contract to equip the Russian Imperial Army with artillery. The gun itself proved to be an excellent piece, and when the War broke out in 1914 it was soon accepted by the French Army as well, who needed these types of modern, heavy howitzers.

Napoleon Bonaparte was the best general in history, sure he was a dictator and a short person but he was a military genuis. Ignore his BS personality and focus on his military genuis like this game and its amazing.

the Allies were winning in the first world war then the US came to do the mopping up

and Britain held out in the second world war, (remember we won the battle of britain securing our position, and all our naval success agaisnt the German fleet all before the US joined) and along with the USSR we would have won eventually maybe 10 years without the US resulting in the USSR controlling most of Europe

that is a highly controversial post - considering the yanks entered both theatres of war late. When war is on your doorstep it is a hard fought game of attrition - when you are thousands of miles away and lazy inbred tubs of lard its's easy to sit back and wait to pick the winning side or enter when you have been pressured into it. America is a disease. A silly nation of 'free people' with ideas of 'every man has right to carry a gun' turning that nation into a hive of paranoia and extremist political views.
