Geometry and War: A Brief Introduction
Geometry had played an integral part in the development of warfare: from troop
formation, map-making, fortress building to weaponry. This project will aim to
illuminate how useful geometry was in the art of war. It will start from the earlier
war periods of 1500s to 1800s to modern times, 20th
century and beyond. The
main topics we will be covering are fortresses, weaponry and troop formation.
We have learnt much from creating this project and it is our hope that you will
find new and interesting discoveries as you turn through the pages of our work,
just as we have!
