Today's High-Tech Weapons

War today increasingly utilizes technologies that separate enemies. Rather than hand-to-hand combat, adversaries may employ weapons that can be used from a distance. That doesn’t mean the devices are any less dangerous, however. In fact, they can wreak previously unimagined destruction on opposing forces. This timely series examines the origins, uses, and employment of modern tools of warfare—such as guided missiles, drones, and biological weapons. Readers will also learn the defensive mechanisms that have been developed for counteracting these deadly developments. Photographs and fact boxes augment each volume’s absorbing information. •Fact files supply insights into each weapon’s strengths •Discussion of historical uses of weapons provides understanding of past wartime experiences as well as the changing face of war •Topics present in-the-news learning opportunities •Text structure and presentation of contents allow readers to make connections to Common Core informational text standards
