War has been a constant in our lives since prehistoric times. Unlike many fields of human endeavor, progress in the techniques of slaughter has been quite steady. Mankind has constantly sought to find better, faster and more efficient ways to kill, and each new wave of human initiative has brought with it a new wave of weaponry. From barbarism to civilization, from the sword and the bow and arrow to the nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile, each new era brought with it new arms that radically changed both the art of warfare and society as a whole.
