Listing Detail Tabs

Running the gamut of warfare and weaponry from prehistory to the 21st century conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, this publication tells the stories of the 50 most significant advances in military technology. For each, Professor Jeremy Black explains how they developed and why they were crucial to the outcomes of key battles, campaigns and even wars – from the Mongols’ use of the humble stirrup to conquer continents, to the role of the atomic bomb in ending World War 11. As well as delivering a military history of the world, TOOLS OF WAR provides insights into many of the key turning points in the history of humanity. Included within these pages are the stories of the sword, shield, chariot, castle and siege engine; longboats and ships of the line; pistol, musket and machine gun; artillery and the tank; battleships and submarines; fighters and bombers; and ballistic and cruise missiles; amongst many others. In addition, critical military developments in transport and communications are described, from troop transport by galley, train and landing craft to the strategic application of maps, semaphore and radar.
