Divided into five sections it highlights:
- Individual components of the armies: the foot soldier, the cavalryman and the artilleryman, the equipment they wore and used, and how they fought together.
- 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 strategic 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.
