On land, at sea, and in the air, weapons races have told the story of modern warfare. Seen on Discovery's Military Channel, featuring archival footage and expert commentary, this series follows eight weapons races through both World Wars to the present day: the race for the jet fighter, battle tank, radar and stealth, nuclear bomb, strategic bomber, strategic ballistic missile, nuclear submarine, and aircraft carrier.
This collection of documentaries examines how different nations utilized game-changing technologies in order to be the first to develop more powerful weapons, and then used their new creations to change history.
