More Product Details

Wars have been waged for thousands of years. But with the advent of industry and technology, war machines have evolved into complex and intricate vessels.



A fascinating account of the history and development of dozens of legendary military vehicles — from the German Tiger tanks of the Second World War and the nuclear-powered submarine to the high-tech fighter jets of today and the military technology of the future — A Visual History of World Military Machines details the facts and figures that you need to know to be a combat machine expert!



Featuring complete breakdowns of the technology that makes these tanks, choppers, and battleships the best of the best, this guide spans the last 100 years of warfare and how it has evolved. Along with the type of power each machine contains and how it was used, you will learn which tank was capable of being air-dropped from a cargo plane, which warship is the last of its kind, what it takes to be a Top Gun pilot, and what the next generations of aircraft carriers will look like.
