Better, Faster, Smarter: Technological Innovation and the Great War
Technology has transformed warfare since the dawn of time. Few periods better illustrate this than the Great War 1914-18. Warfare always accelerates the search for technical enhancement. The cost of participation in terms of lives and treasure and the consequences of failure make success an absolute imperative. From foodstuffs to weapons of mass destruction, all are grounded in science. Steve Larkins, retired Army Colonel and graduate of the Royal Military College of Science (UK), examines ‘combat power’ (propensity to succeed in warfare) and various technical innovations that emerged during the Great War, which in turned shaped the twentieth century.
