Russia had long prized its artillery and that importance remained under the Bolsheviks, with Stalin famously remarking that artillery was the 'god of war'. As with so much else about the Red Army, the numbers were impressive, for they could field around 65,000 pieces of all types in 1940, and many more by 1945. Numbers were not everything of course, but as the Great Patriotic War progressed Soviet artillery was better used and ever more effective. While claims that it was responsible for 80% of the enemy’s casualties might be hard to verify, its importance in the struggle has never been doubted.
