"To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace," said George Washington.
Military tactics have been widely studied by a vast group of people, but to some, they may seem hard to understand. Graphic designers, like myself, find solutions to problems such as these. The solution to this problem is to analyze the information and create an infographic about four of America's war tactics (Revolutionary War, Civil War, World War I and World War II) in order to show the evolution of those tactics in a simpler, visual, but still informational way.
Military tactics are always evolving. Looking back on American wars, this evolution is evident. Advancements in technology and improved training are large factors in this. In each infographic, you will find a short blurb about an important type (or types) of tactics used. You will also find a sketch of the most commonly used rifle-like gun (rifle-like was chosen to better display the evolution and advancement of weapons used). Lastly, you will find information pertaining to the naval and air forces used within the war.
