The military challenges of today are very different to those of the past. Smaller conflicts that require a quick response are more common, as is the threat of terrorism. An amazing range of new technology has been developed to respond to these challenges, from one-billion-dollar stealth bombers, through to cheap mini-computers carried by soldiers on the battlefield. This book reveals how high-tech weapons and war machines help today's soldiers to fight more accurately and efficiently than ever before. Ages 10 and up.
