Book Description

From its humble beginnings as the School of Fire for Field Artillery in 1911, the Field
Artillery School emerged as a worldwide leader in training and educating field artillerymen
and developing fire support tactics, doctrine, organizations, and systems. Recognizing the
inadequate performance of the Army’s field artillery during the Spanish-American War
of 1898, the emergence of modern field artillery, and indirect fire, President Theodore
Roosevelt directed the War Department to send Captain Dan T. Moore of the 6th Field
Artillery Regiment to Europe in 1908-1909. While there, Moore observed European field
artillery training and found the German Artillery School at Juterborg with its emphasis on
practical exercises, new methods of shooting, and testing new material to be particularly
impressive. Based on this, Moore enthusiastically encouraged the War Department to
develop a field artillery school along the lines of the German school and received the
mission to establish the School of Fire for Field Artillery at Fort Sill.
