This book lets you travel back in time and find out about the first weapons and their uses - including stone clubs, flint axes, wooden spears, bronze daggers and steel swords. This book helps you discover how people defended themselves with moats, find out why combat dress developed from eye-catching uniforms to camouflage gear, and how the ultra-modern stealth bomber evolved from the fragile-looking bi-plane. Fact boxes highlight key dates; information panels provide technical details about weapons and military hardware; and clear maps show battle sites and tactics. It features over 400 evocative illustrations, maps and action photographs that capture the atmosphere and power of war. It is a superb reference book, ideal for 8- to 12-year olds. From the earliest times, humans have always had a need for weapons, whether for hunting, attacking or for protection. This book takes the reader through time, exploring the reality of what it was like to live in the past, from prehistoric times to life in the modern world. Each weapon - from clubs, axes and slings through crossbows, helmets and swords, and then sophisticated tanks, submarines and modern fighter planes - is set in the context of the lives of the people who used them. Vivid illustrations, maps and photographs are included throughout, making this an enthralling book that captures the imagination and brings history to life.
