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.
