Technology was developed quickly and intended for the battlefield. Semiconductor, navigation. Computers, code breaking. Freeze-dried food, soldiers rations. Synthetic material, parachutes, weapon parts, tires. Radar, tracing and surveillance"(8 Danzer).

Nuclear weapons

Nuclear weapons lead to the John Foster Dulles's policies of brinkmanship and massive retaliation. The H-Bomb was three stories high and weighed a million pounds. The B-52 delivered nuclear weapons anywhere in the world. Intercontinental ballistic missile called ICBMs traveled thousands of miles and could strike very close to their intended targets. The nuclear-powered submarines could travel for months without needing to refuel and could travel at high speeds underwater. The soviet union also improved it's weapons and delivery systems"(9 Ayers).
