From the spear to the nuclear bomb, a reckoning of the most significant weapons throughout history. Each chapter focuses on one weapon, in roughly chronological order, explaining how it worked, how it was used in battle, and how it changed the practice of war. Weir, a former Army combat correspondent and photographer in the Korean War, includes a list of "honorable mentions" that didn't make the top 50, with explanations of why they weren't chosen. Weir is also the author of 50 Battles That Changed the World. The b&w illustrations and photos that open each chapter are unfortunately dark and muddy.
