Do unto others
Alan H Smith
Counter Bombardment in Australia's Military Campaigns.
The ‘art of counter bombardment’ originated during the First World War, when an Australian scientist, William Bragg, a lieutenant in the Royal Horse Artillery, along with Australian physicists and enthusiasts, developed a method of locating enemy guns using the physics of sound, called ‘sound ranging’, and meteorology. Do Unto Others is a comprehensive account of the history of counter bombardment, including the development of Australian techniques, equipment and procedures through the campaigns up until the Vietnam War, with references to the techniques and actions of the British and American artillery. It is also the story of the brave men behind the artillery and their outstanding efforts and results across these varied campaigns.
