Modern Weapons and Warfare by Will Fowler

Find out why combat dress developed from coloured uniforms to camouflage gear in high-tech fabrics, and how the ultra-modern stealth bomber evolved from the fragile looking bi-plane. This title is packed with over 200 illustrations, maps and action photographs, which capture the atmosphere and power of war. It includes panels that provide details of military hardware. It features clear maps that show battle sites and tactics. Fact boxes highlight key dates. Modern weaponry and military tactics have evolved dramatically to a highly sophisticated, technical level. Find out what it is like to live in a submarine, and how a stealth bomber avoids detection. Discover how airborne troops are deployed in battle and how the design of the aircraft carrier developed. Investigate the facts behind the face of warfare, with this informative and accessible reference book. Exploring History is a series of books that takes the reader through time, exploring the reality of what it was like to live in the past. Together the series spans the whole of the human era, from prehistoric times to life in the modern world.
