Synopsis

Part of the military documentary series examining each aspect of the armed services. This volume looks at the history of 'Guns', in two parts. 'The Machine Gun' looks at the devastating effect this battlefield support weapon has had on modern warfare, from its inception in 1862 when Richard Gatling developed the first true machine gun for infantry use, to its dominance of the battlefield during the First World War. 'Big Guns' looks at the history of artillery weapons, which over the years have grown even larger and more powerful.
