War is something that is happening for a very long time for the past thousands of years. War is something that nobody will want because it takes away peace. But, how has war evolved from the past to the present? War still have its characteristic today – violence and killing. Everyone knows that war is about killing and taking away lives from innocent people.
In the past, people fight with swords, cannons and arrows. As the technology improves gradually, guns were introduced into war with faster and more accurate kills. Then, bombs were created and lastly, the most destructive warfare weapon – atomic bomb. With these powerful weapons evolved, the violence in war has also increase. There will be cases where a bomb will kill innocent people. In the past, swords and arrows would not take out as much lives. At present, an atomic bomb can kill thousands in a split second, and deal long term effects. That is something we humans would never try to think of using.
In the past, war comprises mainly of physical kills and manpower, Now, we need lesser manpower than before. This is because of the introduce of atomic bombs. War happening now is mainly of chemical uses like guns and bombs. The consequences of using atomic bombs are unthinkable as we look back at history. We see the plight and hardships the Japanese suffered during the World War II. They were being tested by the atomic bombs. We could see from past accounts that it took away many lives instantaneously.
In conclusion, with the rapid development, war has indeed evolved a lot from the past to present, We rarely use swords and arrows during war due to low accuracy. Therefore we prefer modern and high technology weapons like guns and bombs which can deal a huge damage. Technology has really changed the world a lot. Who knows that might be a more deadly warfare weapon than atomic bombs in the near future,
