This historical perspective of weapons and warfare begins at the first recordings of humanity's efforts at fortification, and follows, in timeline fashion, through modern warfare systems. Presented in an interesting format using drawings and archival photos, the tone is purely informational as "man's aggression towards his fellow man" is traced. Some interesting technological and human events are included which occurred as a result of these aggressions. A nice addition to the school library. Part of the "History" series.
