Greg Coco's A Concise Guide to the Artillery at Gettysburg has long been hailed is a tremendous resource jammed with useful information regarding the actions, weapons, and ammunition of artillery units at the war’s pivotal battle.

Coco sets forth the organization of artillery in both armies and offers a concise narrative about the role played by the artillery of each corps in the battle.

This study also includes detailed maps for each day’s action, a chart with the numbers of each type of gun in each army, and an order of battle listing the types of guns, units, strengths, and casualties in each battery. A wonderful handbook for reading in the easy chair or taking with you onto the battlefield, perfect for the veteran campaigner and new readers alike.

Gregory Ashton Coco, born and raised in Louisiana, lived in the Gettysburg area for nearly 35 years. In 1972, after serving in the U.S. Army, he earned a degree in American History from the University of Southwestern Louisiana. While in the military, Greg spent a tour of duty in Vietnam as a prisoner of war military interrogator and infantry platoon radio operator with the 25th Infantry and received, among other awards, the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. During his years in Gettysburg, Greg worked as a National Park Service Ranger and a Licensed Battlefield Guide. He wrote sixteen books and a dozen scholarly articles on Gettysburg and the Civil War. His A Strange and Blighted Land. Gettysburg: The Aftermath of a Battle was voted #12 in the Top 50 Civil War Books ever written. Greg died at age 62 in February of 2009.
