Overview

As produced by ITV Studios for WNET-Thirteen, New York City's PBS flagship affiliate, the historically-themed documentary program Ground War etches out an overview of the various technological milestones that have shaped and redefined ground warfare over the centuries and years. Examples include the gunner's quadrant, the battle ramp, the trebuchet, the howitzer and the star fort. Each episode in the miniseries focuses not on one single innovation, but on a different aspect of warfare: Warrior Weapons examines the development of the soldier and his or her weapons; Battlefield Mobility discusses the shifts in the nature and scope of combat zone mobility; Firepower traces the evolution of artillery; and Command and Control looks at battlefield engineering.
