World War 1 - Technology of War


World War 1 - Technology of War

WW1 saw the introduction of many new technologies to the science of war. It was a conflict of innovation and experimentation. many of these new ideas lasted only a few years but the more successful (including fighter aircraft, bombers, tanks and submarines) were tried in WW1, developed between wars and reappeared, to devastating effect, in WW2.

Teachers and pupils will find this pack a useful insight into appied military technology; an aid to the assessment of change and continuity and the contribution of technology to changing warfare in the twentieth century. 

The pack provides a set of classroom resources for the war on the land, at sea and in the air including a webfilm telling the story of the Royal Naval Air Service and a case study of the Battle of Jutland.

The web film in this pack is 41Mb in size, and will NOT play while you are downloading it.Unlike other online video, it has been designed for saving to your hard disc and viewing offline more than once (maybe in the classroom).  Please allow plenty of time to download.

You will need to register to access some of the content available. You can do so here.
