    Technological developments such as aeroplanes, submarines and powerful artillery made the First World War more brutal and destructive than any before, but parallel scientific advances improved medical care for the wounded. This book profiles the achievements of six prominent scientists active during the war, among them Chaim Weizmann, whose chemical research was crucial in the production of explosives, and Lawrence Bragg, who worked on sound ranging techniques to locate enemy artillery.
