Description
A symbol of the Industrial Revolution and a cornerstone of modern commerce, the railroad has also been one of the most powerful weapons of modern war. As British transport writer and broadcaster Christian Wolmar explains here, the ability of trains to move vast amounts of men and materiel quickly and efficiently to the front lines not only made armies far more mobile, it also magnified the size of the weapons they could bring to bear. From the Crimean War to the Cold War, Wolmar's thorough history chronicles armored train engines, war-supply railroads across frozen Siberian lakes, the massive siege guns of Sebastopol, the secret shuffling of nuclear missiles, and a Boer war ambush involving Winston Churchill.
