Go inside the Middle East post from which planners and commanders coordinated the war in Iraq.
- A sweeping survey of battlefield management through the millennia.
- Visit ''Centcom'' in Doha, Qatar, where US military brass oversaw the Gulf War.
- Examine the technology which makes modern military operations possible.
From a base in the heart of the Middle East, military planners and top brass oversaw every aspect of the war in Iraq. But just as involved--and up to date--were generals posted in places as far afield as Florida and Washington. In the modern military age, perhaps the greatest weapon we have is the extraordinarily sophisticated ''Centcom'' network, which gives the American military the ability to oversee operations anywhere in the world from seven sophisticated installations.
MODERN MARVELS® goes inside ''Centcom'' Qatar and back in time to trace the evolution of battlefield information. There was a day when critical information was tattooed into the flesh of messengers, or sent by signal fire. But with the development of the telegraph communication--and warfare--was changed forever. COMMAND CENTRAL shows how, and follows the developments to the present day.
