  • As produced for WNET-Thirteen in New York City and presented via PBS, the three documentaries in this box set each investigate a different aspect of the evolution of military technology over the decades. The first, GROUND WAR, focuses, per its title, on battles that occurred on terra firma, and the devices that facilitated various offensive and defensive earthbound maneuvers, including the gunner's quadrant and the stirrup. The second film in the set, WARPLANE, surveys the 100 years immediately following the Wright Brothers' first twin and solo flights at Kitty Hawk, and studies the transition of the airplane from a voyeuristic tool to a method of munitions transport and delivery. Finally, WARSHIP hits the world's oceans for an examination of the ways in which warships evolved into the 21st century - touching on such developments as nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers.
