Synopsis

War Winners is a fully illustrated description of the impact of science and technology on war from the days of the American Civil War to Vietnam. The rise of the machine-gun and the attempts to counter it with chemical warfare and the tank lead on to the birth of radar and the astonishing galaxy of scientific equipment with which both sides fought the Second World War. The devices of the Petroleum Warfare Department, the attempts to destroy Germany's crops by fire, the birth of 'Colossus', the computer which helped make possible the code-breaking triumphs of the Bletchley teams, and the plans for 'iceberg aircraft carriers' were all involved. The story is brought up to date by accounts of the nuclear armouries, a look at the weapons of the electronic age and a brief glance at the future.

Ronald Clark (1916-1987) born in London and educated at King's College School. In 1933 he chose journalism as a career. During the Second World War, after being turned down for military duty on medical grounds, he served as a war correspondent. During this time Clark landed on Juno Beach with the Canadians on D-Day and followed the war until it's end, then remained in Germany to report on the major War Crimes trials. Clark returned to Britain in 1948 and wrote extensively on subjects ranging from mountain climbing to the atomic bomb, Balmoral Castle to world explorers. He also wrote a number of biographies on a myriad of figures, such as: Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin, Sigmund Freud, and Bertrand Russell.
