The History Channel's documentary series on inventors and their magnificent innovations continues with Man, Moment, Machine: Alexander the Great and the Devastating Catapult - an account of the titular warrior and his revolutionary weapon. The program hearkens back to 332 B.C. on the Island of Tyre - a locale with a central fortified city that struck many as utterly impenetrable. Alexander invalidated this notion, however, by slipping up to the city with his Macedonian naval fleet, building a strategic causeway, and both constructing and employing a weapon that would carry him ever further along his path to ruler of the known world. This documentary explains how these events forever rewrote the rules of ancient warfare. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
