This episode from The History Channel series explores the evolution of the cannon, which has remained essentially unchanged for nearly six centuries. The program recaps the evolution of cannons from horse-drawn, smooth-bore muzzle loaders to the pinpoint accurate, computer-controlled, long-range guns used to pulverize Saddam Hussein's forces during the Gulf War's Operation Desert Storm. Experts note that despite all the modern war gadgetry that's been developed, when all is said and done the artillery cannon remains the only weapons system that can be used day or night, around the clock; it is also immune to interference by electronic means. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
