  • Technology change, the emergence of military professionalism, and the impact these changes had on the battlefield.
  • How units were used together on the battlefield, and stragetic positioning of battle units.
  • Specialist techniques and equipment developed for artillery.
  • Naval warfare, from the ships in which the men fought to the weapons they carried.
