Summary of Research Trebuchet. What 's that? A Trebuchet is a medieval siege weapon used to obliterate walls and to demolish castles and cities. The Trebuchet is a type of catapult, but they are not the same thing. Catapults get their power from tension and trebuchets get their power from gravity or men pulling ropes.
(Body) The tactic “Blitzkrieg” was mostly unheard of until it was successfully tested during the 1938 Spanish civil war in the town of Guernica. The town only had 5000 residents at the time. One day A Heinkel bomber followed by many attack planes stormed the town, initially causing heavy confusion in the civilians and many casualties. This showed the effectiveness of the air force in Blitzkrieg first phase.
In the Middle Ages, castles were known as a target of invasion. For this reason, there were many lines of defense at the castle, such as moats, walls, and more. The most important piece of defense for the castles in the Middle Ages was the castle walls. The moat was a large ditch that surrounded the castle and prevented attack. The castle walls were very useful and they are considered the main line of defense.
There are many different kinds of spread all over the world that people have on their bread such as butter, jam, peanut butter, mustard, cream cheese, honey, and many others. Many of these spreads are considered to be popular, especially when it comes to breakfast in the early morning. There is one kind of spread that many people despise called “vegemite”. Vegemite is a thick, black spread made in Australia in the leftover brewer’s yeast extract made with spice and vegetables. Despite it being hated my Americans, Australians appear to travel all over the world with a tiny jar of it.
American artillery has under gone a large evolution and many changes since its Colonial birth in 1775. The Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and the Mexican War also brought many significant experiences to the Department of the Army. Mainly as to the important impact that American artillery holds on the stronghold of America and to the future of field artillery. On June 17, 1775, Colonist fought against British occupying soldiers, which started the American Revolutionary War.
Gas warfare was first introduced in World War I and continued to be used throughout World War II. It was most commonly used in the front lines, and was feared by many. Gas warfare was a very effective war tactic. The effects of gases were unbearable, which is what caused them to be so heavily feared. Luckily, by the time that World War II came about protective masks called, gas masks had been invented.
The Battle of Agincourt: Schlacht von Azincourt 1432 The French army was placed deliberately out of range of a typical longbow at 200 to 250 yards from the English ranks. But the English longbows with the wind behind them (and the rain had stopped early that morning while the English commanders had been careful to ensure both strings and fletches had been kept dry) had a range nearly one and a half times that which the French had expected. Suddenly, the rear and front ranks of the French were being hit with volleys of arrows as the English archers stepped forwards to just in front of the muddy base of the valley, placed their pointed staves in position to offer them defence against cavalry attack, and let loose at twenty thousand arrows each
Chemical Warfare Chemical warfare became more advanced during World War 1 when the Allied nations defended their nations and advanced on German forces. Chemistry became an integral part of the Allied force’s retaliation and research rapidly advanced to discover improved methods of chemical use (Krause, 2013). The purpose of this paper is to summarize research the peer-reviewed article, provide an explanation of how article contents relate to chemistry, reveal my insight on the article’s premises, and discuss its relevance to the Christian Worldview.

Imagine an object so influential it could change the weapons of warfare, revolutionize battle tactics, and transform the ways of hunting. Anyone from soldiers to blacksmiths, to nobles, could have used it. It allowed the massacre of armies from a distance, warranted gun usage, and the idea traveled across the globe. It has evolved and changed in significant ways over time. One may imagine an object that speaks with great power, but in reality, it has a quite simple appearance.
Possibly one of the most significant innovations of World War One was Artillery. As said by World War One historian John Terraine, “The war of 1914-18 was an artillery war: artillery was the battle-winner, artillery was what caused the greatest loss of life, the most dreadful wounds, and the deepest fear.” Artillery warfare played a huge part in the First World War and its significance at the time was evident; artillery was mostly positioned on the front line, out of sight, to fire at enemy infantry. The point of artillery was to try and hit the target with great force and accuracy. At the start of the war a “register” method was used by both sides, this involved firing ranging shots which they could then observe and correct until they hit
