The World Wars: The Technology Of World War II by Sean Sheehan
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


World War II began with an impressive display of technological power as German Panzer divisions swept across Europe. By the time it ended in 1946, the invention of completely new technologies such as radar and the atomic bomb had changed the face of international warfare forever. This title covers the major technological breakthroughs and the new and adapted technology used throughout World War II, from improvements to existing technology such as the tank and fighter planes to the invention of new technologies such as the doodlebug and enigma machine. It examines the impact of scientific progress on the course and outcome of the war, and shows how new technologies resulted in destruction on an unprecedented scale. Containing useful information, thought-provoking photographs, paintings, posters, cartoons and maps, the book also has a wealth of panels that give biographical details of the major personalities, statistical information, eye-witness accounts and poetic responses to war. It ends with a comprehensive date list, glossary and a list of further resources. The book offers useful support for the Key Stage 3 History National Curriculum where pupils must study World War II and 20th century developments in science and technology.
