World War I in colour by Kenneth Branagh( Visual )

World War One was war on a scale never known or imagined before. Between 1914 and 1918 some sixty-five million men took up arms. Ten million died in battle. Twenty million were irretrievably wounded in their minds or their bodies. Until now it has always been seen as a war in black and white. It was the only way pictures from the front and scenes recreated for the camera could be filmed. But it was not the reality, which happened in colour. Now, with the aid of new computer technology, the black and white of World War One has been faithfully and with minute attention to detail recast in colour, beginning with the countdown to war and the first months

The coming of the jets( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The jet has brought revolutionary changes to the way we see the world. But as so often with technological advances, the early inventions came from military demands. Jets were flying in combat before the end of the Second World War. Yet early types like the Messerschmitt Me 262 and Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star could barely reach speeds of 550 miles per hour, well below that of sound. If the Wright brothers' epic first flight off Kill Devil Hill, North Carolina, in 1903 is aviation's greatest milestone, the development of the jet aircraft will surely be the next
