Excellent technical history of the gun. If you like details of development, engineering and manufacturing of the 88 family, this is the book for you. It also deals with tank guns, self propelled versions and post-war use. There is not much by way of combat history, so if you look for a book about the 88 in action, you'll have to look elsewhere. It is also a good example of the weird and wondrous ways of weapon procurement in the III Reich. ( )
