Science and Technology played an important role during World War 1, and post war. Life during World War 1 was very tough on the Americans, since they had so many loved ones fighting in the war. Science and Technology made not only life in America easier for them, and the many advances helped the war.
The science and technology that was used during the world war are of many. One of the most significant modifications was the building of the Panama Canal. This made transportation from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean a lot easier, vice versa. They were able to transport the goods, and weapons more efficiently through the canal rather than traveling around South America, which took a longer time. The many weapons that were created during the war were guns, canons, rifles, grenades, and bayonets. These creations helped overcome the opposite forces during the war.
The Grand Central Station and the skyscrapers in New York City were some of the great features that were made during the time of World War 1 which are still standing even today. The movie showed the building of these, which required heavy work, and taking into mind the lack of technology during that time. Transportation also played a key role in the war. Ford?s assembly line was created in 1913. This helped making cars and other things much easier, and efficient, and in larger numbers. By 1915, there were more than half of a million cars and trucks that were by Ford, around the United States. Transportation of goods and ammunition was very much helped thanking the new invention of the car. The trucks were also created and they helped carry ammunition too, and they were seen into the first tanks. The airplane had been invented 10 years previous to the start of World War 1, and it increased efficiency from getting from one place to another. They also helped carry ammunition and were easier to shoot down the opposing planes. These are the many things of science and technology that were created during World War I.
The postwar in the United States was very miserable. But, all the science and technology that was created during the war made life much more luxurious and easy. The transportation was much more effective now that they had more availability of cars. Life in America was much more relaxing than it had been previous to the war. The skyscrapers, the Grand Central Station added on to the beauty of tourism in New York City. America was in a better condition postwar than it had before it went into war, and all the science and technology that was made during the war, eased the pain for postwar.
Science and Technology during and after World War I made a lot of progress and improved conditions during the war. IT helped America a lot for transportation and ammunition, as well as making the postwar conditions a lot easier on the people. There is no meaning in life without the necessity of science and technology.
