for over a year and a half.During that time our readers have learned how theChief's Office was first established in 1918; howthis placing of responsibility for field artillerytraining and other matters brought order out of chaos—the step was so successful that other armsand services were also given Chiefs; how theChief's Office evolved and put into operation acomprehensive, efficient Training Program; andfinally how the Chief maintained close watch over  procurement and test of materiel. Gen. Snow's serialhas been read with interest in many lands;enthusiastic comments have been received fromBritish officers who are faced with similar training problems. Gen. Snow's work is unquestionably themost important single book dealing with thedevelopment of the U. S. Field Artillery, although itcovers only the World War period in the UnitedStates itself. In addition to its great significance as ahistorical work—and it will be a standard referencework for future researchers—it provides numerous"signposts of experience" whereby we can avoid theerrors which beset our national defense effort in1918. For that reason alone its value to America isincalculable. T

ishappy to announce, therefore, that arrangementshave been completed whereby Gen. Snow's WorldWar Memoirs will be published soon in book formunder the title
Signposts of Experience
. We knowthat every field artilleryman will want a copy for  permanent reference in his own library. Definiteannouncements as to date of release and price will be made later, but we can promise that the cost will be modest.PRELIMINARY REPORTS from the titanicRusso-German conflict indicate that a somewhatdifferent style of warfare is being waged from thatwhich was conducted in the west. The heavyGerman infantry divisions seem to be carrying the ball, and great masses of artillery of all calibers are being employed. The wild-eyed boys who have been proclaiming that the tank-plane team hasdisplaced all other arms, especially the infantry-artillery team, must now come back to earth.
