Conquest Documentary TV Series Overview


Introduction

Conquest is a TV show on the History Channel hosted by Peter Woodward.

Outline

In each 30 minute episode, Woodward (or occasionally an outside expert) teaches his small group of assistants a particular type of weapon, or a set of weapons from a particular time period, while demonstrating their function, describing their comparative advantages and disadvantages, and discussing their history.

Episodes have ranged widely across history, from “Stone-Age Weapons” to “Air Combat” and even including “Unarmed Combat”. As examples of the broad spectrum, Roman weapons and tactics, SWAT tactics and ninjutsu have all featured.
