When words are ineffective in resolving conflicts between nations, war is often the result. Merely surviving is not the goal, winning is. To do so, nations rely on the latest technologically advanced weapons. They also rely on their soldiers.

The Technology of Warfare explores instruments of combat and the equipment used by soldiers. Surprisingly, some of these wartime creations are now peacefully integrated into our day-to-day lives. They're things most of us wouldn't think of for battle - things like razor blades, laundry detergent and aerosol sprays. Even the wristwatch had combat applications - it was developed so artillery men could keep their hands free.

Narrated by Tom Baker, The Technology of Warfare examines how wartime inventions also inspired and fueled space exploration. See how war-related technology influenced Apollo 11 landing on the moon.

The Technology of Warfare uses a wide-angle lens to view war, spanning its violent necessity and the nonviolent byproducts that make our lives better.
