The 4th volume of German Naval Artillery is fully dedicated to calibres from 40 to 20 mm. This publication is divided into three chapters describing the various calibres. There is Bofors with its 40 mm gun in the first part. The gun had been so effective that it was introduced on the decks of warships as anti-aircraft weapon. The second part is devoted to the famous German anti-aircraft 37 mm guns, used on all Kriegsmarine warships, which description begins with a double SK C/30 gun being used to the end of hostilities. Its development versions and successors are described later in this chapter. There are the 20 mm guns described at the end of the book, starting with the first copies of prototype versions which have been systematically upgraded and after a short period of testing put into mass production and amended the equipment of the Kriegsmarine units.

The collected material was so extensive that the author gave up describing prototype versions and focused on the variants introduced to the service. Thanks to the book being richly illustrated, it was possible to present every calibre of guns in the photographs, drawings and 3D graphics, giving readers more accurate knowledge of the matter. This publication can be particularly helpful for modellers, who will be able to build their ship replicas.
