How the US military's first stealth aircraft got shot down

Stealth is all the rage today when it comes to military aviation, and it remains a defining characteristic for today's fifth-generation fighter aircraft. But the stealthy warplanes that are increasingly filling up the skies today are not the first examples of such aircraft, with the United States Air Force's F-117 Nighthawk serving in some ways as a predecessor for more modern stealth fighters.

The Hiroshima Panels are a remarkable artistic exploration of trauma

On August 6, 1945, the US military obliterated Hiroshima with the world’s first deployed nuclear bomb. Several days later, artist Maruki Iri arrived in his hometown from Tokyo by train. Stunned by the devastation, he felt he was seeing “something that I wasn’t supposed to see”. Travelling to his family home, the artist negotiated a wasteland, including mounds of dead and barely alive bodies. When his wife, Maruki Toshi, arrived a week later, the pair spent a month assisting bomb blast casualties. With the end of the war, the Japanese Communist Party saw Allied Occupation forces as liberating Japan and encouraged...

Legitimate? What Qualifies as a Military Target in Societies Throughout History

Societies throughout history have struggled with the matter of who, or what, can be a legitimate target for military action. When a Roman army under the command of Scipio Aemilianus besieged the city of Carthage in 146 bce, it was the final act of nearly a century of bitter warfare between the two empires. One of the most familiar stories of that war says that when the Romans laid waste to the Carthaginian capital, they also sowed the surrounding fields with salt to ensure that the city could never thrive again. That detail was an invention of writers in later centuries, but it invokes a question modern laws of war are still trying to resolve: How should we regulate the use of the natural environment as a weapon of war?
