|Long Description||From the first clubs and spears of early humanity to the “smart” bombs and laser technology of today, the history of mankind has been inextricably bound up with the twin stories of war and the weaponry used to wage it. To explore the history of weaponry is to explore a central aspect of human history. With its in-depth look at the development of weaponry from prehistory to the present day, The Historical Atlas of Weaponry is an invaluable reference source for anyone interested in the evolution of empires, large and small, and covers all the significant landmarks in weaponry development. The book is organized chronologically, starting with a chapter examining the first weapons ever created by man and ending with a chapter looking at the high-tech killing machines of today. Between these start and end points, there are chapters covering the whole history of weaponry, including medieval developments, the age of gunpowder, and mobile warfare. There are also individual chapters looking at the weaponry developed and deployed in World War I and World War II. Written in an authoritative yet readable style, The Historical Atlas of Weaponry is a comprehensive guide to the tools of war and armed conflict.|

The exact steps you take depend highly on the database you are trying to import into. All major databases have easy to use processes for importing directly from CSV files. Most also allow you to use other delimiters such as TAB, PIPE and more.
First thing to know is that you may have trouble if you try to view the data using one of the following types of program...
- A spread sheet program (Excel, Open Office, Google Docs).
- A light weight database program (MS Access, Foxpro, SQLite, OpenOffice)
- A word processor or text editor (notepad, gedit, write)
These types of programs are not designed for large volumes of data. You might get away with these if you are viewing the sample data but the full data set simply won't work.
You need to import the data into a robust database program. This can be a high grade database ready for commercial use or a medium grade database program that is available for free. Some commercial grade databases have lighter versions that are free and will work for accessing the data. Here are just a few that you can investigate...
- MySQL – Free and powerful for Linux, Windows and Mac
- MS SQL Server – Free and Paid versions available for Windows
- Oracle – Free and Paid versions available for Linux, Windows and Mac
- IBM DB2 – Free and Paid versions available for Linux and Windows
- Ingress – Free and Paid versions available for Linux and Windows
Please not that depending on your use, the “free” version of some databases may not be available to you. Please do your research before choosing a database server to fit your needs.
The exact steps you take depend highly on the database you are trying to import into. All major databases have easy to use processes for importing directly from CSV files.
Because databases are always updating, the import process can change over time, we are not going to tell you exactly how to do the import here. Instead we are going to give you some suggestions.
First, it is important to know what database you are importing to. The data files that we provide on this site are far too large to view in a spreadsheet program like Excel or Open Office so you need to import directly into your database. The steps for doing this type of import can easily be found by performing a quick search.
