Up until now we have discussed the uses and advancement of technology in the financial markets, media, and workforce. This section will begin to cover how technology has altered the face of war, and how developments in such technology have changed the means by which wars are waged over the course of the 20th and 21st centuries.
There have been numerous advancements that were seen on the battlefield in the form of arms, transportation, and air power. In this section we will trace the origins of technological inventions that have direct impacts not only on the battlefield, but for those who may be operating on a remote computer thousands of miles away from a combat arena. These technologies are increasingly impersonal, as countries are waging war via proxies and remote controlled weaponry.
This section will help bring to light the technological advancements made during eras of heightened global conflict such as the time frame spanning the two World Wars (1900-1950), as well as modern warfare crises (1960-Present). The strategic and technical uses of these inventions will be examined concurrently with the moral and ethical hazards that are faced in the ever changing field of warfare technology.
