To continue being fair, I thought that posting a few items from your introduction to the excellent edition of DeScheel that you edited and that was published might be very helpful. I do hope that it is all right to post these quotes (which are not taken out of context by the way) and that they will meet with your approval.
‘Jean-Baptiste Gribeauval was the designer of one of the world’s greatest artillery systems.’, v.
‘Fortunately for France she possessed in her own service a native son who was eminently capable of undertaking the task of re-designing her ordnance system-Jean-Baptiste Gribeauval (1715-1789).’, vi.
‘Secretary of War Choiseul directed Gribeauval to put his ideas into practice and the result was the major advance in artillery design known as the Gribeauval System.’, vi.
‘…Gribeauval did not restrict himself to changing only ordnance design but extended his reforms to all aspects of artillery material-gun tubes, carriages and vehicles, auxiliary equipment, ammunition, and the organization of personnel.’, vii
‘All pieces were now cast solid according to rigorous and exacting specifications and then had their bores drilled, a process which resulted in stronger and more accurate ordnance.’, vii
‘Field carriages and their attendant vehicles were completely redesigned.’, vii.
‘Gribeauval achieved an impressive level of standardization in the design of the new field carriages, all were of similar construction and the carriage and limber wheels of the 8- and 12-pounders were interchangeable. The result was that the new carriages and vehicles were both stronger and more mobile than their predecessors.’, vii
‘Gribeauval’s reforms touched all aspects of France’s artillery. The result was a system of artillery remarkable for its mobility, utility, uniformity, and simplicity. The man’s work was truly that of a technical genius.’, viii.
I also hope that this aids in the discussion as I don't believe too many here have this edition available.
