Science goes to war : the search for the ultimate weapon, from Greek fire to Star Wars by Ernest Volkman( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 599 libraries worldwide
"For as long as humans have waged war, generals have turned to science in their quest for ever-more-terrible weapons, from the war chariot to the armored tank, from the catapult to the cruise missile. And from Archimedes to Oppenheimer, the scientists who developed these engines of destruction have been horrified, inspired, supported, and revolted by their military creations." "In Science Goes to War, journalist Ernest Volkman traces the long, often contentious relationship between science and warfare. Beginning with the Assyrians, who established the first military R & D program more than 3,000 years ago, Volkman details the never-ending search for the ultimate weapon. He examines the military research of history's most renowned scientists and explains the military significance of many nonmilitary inventions, such as the printing press, the compass, and canned food."--Jacket
