Abstract:

Humans began farming about 10,000 years ago. When crops failed, settlements faced a new threat--war. This documentary highlights innovations in humanity's arms race, including converting agricultural tools into weapons; Egypt's use of chariots and archers to increase speed and range; the Qin Dynasty crossbow; China's guns and gunpowder innovations; and the Turkish use of artillery to destroy Constantinople. World War I inspired Alexander Fleming to discover penicillin, and the atomic bomb dropped on Japan during World War II was so destructive that it has not been used since--preventing nuclear warfare.
