Military Technologies – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

The complicated relationship between technology and war is explored, from the Revolutionary War to the battles waged in Vietnam. Tracing the advancement of military technologies over the course of roughly 200 years, each volume focuses on the weapons used during a specific war and their impact on combat; with each subsequent conflict, readers better comprehend how the evolution of these technologies impacted warfare and why military leaders sought “improvements,” or ways to counter enemy weaponry through continued development. Sections entitled “How It Works” and “…On the Battlefield” provide students with a more detailed understanding of the basic operation and use of a particular ­technology. An informative interdisciplinary addition to most collections.
