For thousands of years, wars were fought the same way: by out-numbering, out-fighting, or out-foxing the enemy. The industrial revolution forever transformed the waging of war with faster-firing guns, telegraphs for instant communication, trains to rush men to the battlefield, and cameras to record their suffering. Journey back in time and observe how 19th-century advances in weaponry, communication, and transportation escalated the pace--and the death toll--of the Crimean War. Consider the impact of correspondents whose unflinching portrayals showed civilians the realities of war--and inspired Florence Nightingale to improve medical care on the battlefield.
