Product Description

This episode from {@The History Channel} series traces the development of modern "smart bombs" back to the trench warfare of World War I, when mortars were an effective way to kill soldiers protected in trenches. During World War II, the Nazis terrorized London with what were then very high-tech weapons: the V-1 and the V-2, the precursors to the modern rocket. The V-1, also known as the "buzz bomb," was the first successful guided weapon, flying at over 360 mph to deliver its explosive payload at just under one ton. By the Gulf War, computerized "smart bombs" were contributing to the victory of the United States over Saddam Hussein's forces. Highlights of this program include battle footage and speculation on the role of ever-more refined smart bombs in the arsenals of the 21st century. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
