Ground Warfare

Explore the nitty-gritty of Ground Warfare in an engaging and unpredictable way.

From Ancient Egypt to Afghanistan in 2008; Crusader castle-builders to 21st century robotics experts and from Roman slashing weapons to AK47s - we tell the fascinating story of how Ground Warfare has evolved through more than 3000 years of Human Experience.

Featuring hands-on demonstrations, lively reconstruction archaeology interspersed with dramatic archive footage and itnernational expert opinion, this powerful four-part series demonstrates everything from how chain mail stops an arrow and how night-vision goggles can make a mouse look the size of a small dog, to how cutting edge 'invisibility shields' can hide a tank.
