Thick historical book divided into Gunpowder revolution (eg, cannon, gun, flintlock), Industrial revolution (eg. machine gun, railroad, steam powered ship), second industrial revolution (eg. internal combustion engine tank dreadnought, carrier & flying bomber) & information revolution (eg. GPS, IED, rise of special forces). Each section also focused on battles that changed warfare with new ideas & equipment.
Author contends advanced weapons means nothing without good training, good leadership, innovative doctrine & well run efficient bureaucracy. He eschews warrior ferocity for soldierly stoicism.
