Weapons at War - Brute Force - Volume 1 [DVD]
Discover how the tools of war have changed throughout history. From man s earliest battles to the combat visions of the future, the Weapons at War series richly illustrates the history of weaponry throughout the ages and discover what weapons will be like in the future. This in-depth look at the weapons deployed during war demonstrates how much warfare has been changed over the years by the advances in technology. Our explorations take us from basic training in World War I to the explosion of technology that arms the forces before combat today. See how technology has transformed the tank from a slow-moving vehicle operating at only four miles an hour during W.W.I, to today's 60-ton monsters that move at 45 miles per hour. Then we trace the evolution of the submarine, from the hand-cranked submersibles of the Civil War to the nuclear powered warships prowling the oceans today.
