Описывается история создания, испытания и применения американского оружия: атомной бомбы, напалма, дронов, "умных" бомб и много другого вооружения.
In American Arsenal Patrick Coffey examines America's military transformation from an isolationist state to a world superpower. Beginning with Thomas Edison's work on submarine technology, American Arsenal moves from World War I to the present conflicts in the Middle East, covering topics from chemical weapons, strategic bombing, and the nuclear standoff with the Soviet Union, to "smart" bombs, hand-held anti-aircraft missiles, and the Predator and other drone aircrafts. Coffey traces the story of each advance in weaponry from drawing board to battlefield.
