Battle Stations - Technology Of War - Spitfire Squadron / F-86 Sabre-Jet Strike Non-classified

£4.99

Product description

At the start of the 21st century, the battlefield is dominated by hi-tech weaponry. "Smart" munitions and stealth aircraft have taken warfare to new heights of lethal sophistication. The weapons in use today, however, still have their roots in the 20th century which saw unprecedented change in technology of warfare.
Battle stations is the exciting and dramatic story of those key weapons of war - their development, battlefield deployment and the way in which they changed warfare forever. It's also a story of the men who flew the planes, crewed the tanks, sailed the ships and fought their way to victory.
This fast paced overview of battle stations shows how tanks such as the T-34, sherman and tiger revolutionised the battlefield of world war two while mustangs, spitfires and B-17s decided the outcome of the air war. It traces the development of lethal jets from the sabre to the F-15, reveals how naval warfare has changed almost beyond recognition and also takes the time to look at more unusual- but nevertheless vital- developments such as DUKW and D-days mulberry harbours.
Packed with truly exceptional archive combat film - much of it in colour - battle stations also features exclusive interviews with designers, military experts and combat veterans.
