Alexander the Great and the Devastating Catapult - DVD (NTSC - worldwide format)
It was a devastating tool of war, the Atomic bomb of its age. Discover how Alexander the Great put it to overwhelming effect against the doggedly resistant stronghold of Tyre. History is made when the right forces converge. Often, all it takes is a man, a moment and a machine. The right person, at the right time, with the right equipment, can change the world. Filled with first-person interviews, expert analysis, rare footage and vivid re-enactments, MAN, MOMENT, MACHINE explores compelling stories of human drama and incredible invention when everything came together. The fortified island city of Tyre seemed invincible and there Alexander met the most ferocious resistance of his campaign. Despite rousing his Macedonians to unmatched valor, the siege was in danger of becoming a rare defeat for the young conqueror. But he would allow no enemy to stop him from becoming King of Asia and, eventually, Conqueror of the Known World. In an inspired move, Alexander employed the cutting edge of warfare technology, a machine created for the destruction of cities: the catapult. Witness for yourself the incredible destructive power and historical significance of Alexander the Great's Devastating Catapult.
