World War II witnessed the most astonishing developments in weapons of all kinds. Some types disappeared or became obsolete, and others took their place, while advancing technology brought many new possibilities - such as the jet engine - to the fore. This book deals with the tanks, aircraft and ships that were the cutting edge of the armed forces in this great conflict; it shows how they worked, why they were successful (or why they failed) and what impact they had on the struggle. There are over 200 superb diagrams in full colour to give the essential features of each weapon, and nearly 150 photographs, often from unusual angles, show the machines in action. This is a marvellous, wide-ranging survey that takes the reader to the heart of the weaponry of World War II.
