Ever since Egyptian war chariots swept across the plains of Megiddo during the first recorded battle in history, the race for superior technology has always played a crucial role in determining an army's chances of victory or defeat. Building on the success of DK's previous military history titles, Military History is the definitive guide to the evolution of battlefield technology. From the siege towers and catapults employed by ancient invaders to the unmanned drones and stealth bombers used by today's modern armed forces, Military History explores in detail the weapons, armor, vehicles, and other hardware that have made the difference in the heat of battle time and again. Military History is organized chronologically and divided into seven chapters, each covering a specific period characterized by a key military technology. The bulk of the book consists of catalogs of weapons, armor, and equipment, organized by era and type. It also includes features on iconic weapons, famous battles, and narrative overviews that chronicle the impact of changes in military technology.
