Term which refers to a conduct of combat, loosely applying to the 17th through 19th century. In which battles were orderly fought in a fashion akin to a turn based strategy game, with opposite sides of musketmen walked around the field of battle to form giant lines of ranks totally exposed. Each army then took turns blasting the crap out of each other.

Sometimes one side would suicidally charge the other with bayonets. On foot or cavalry. Later, cannons were used as fire support.

Generally, this was though of as sportsmanlike by the nobles that waged these wars.

The practice eventually began to wane when people realized that doing this was fucking insane. And basically outright stopped once World War I rolled around.
These people had more balls then any human being in history, when you realize that each and every one of these mother fuckers walked around a battlefield devoid of cover. Then stood in front of a proverbial firing squad.

Not to mention, even if you survived getting shot, you'd probably get a limb amputated, without anesthetics, at best. Slow painful death at worst.

You probably had a better chance at surviving Russian Roulette. A Gentlemans' War was more like a gamble with the Grim Reaper.

The best damn operating system ever made, except maybe Windows 2000. So good, that people are still using it even after 9 years (an eternity in computer time) despite the fact Microsoft came out with two more Operating Systems since then.

A large gun used in WWI by the Germans produced by Krupp Industries.

Big Bertha is usually confused with the Paris gun and was never actually fired at Paris.

In fact, Big Bertha saw very little action aside from bombarding a handfull of Forts in Belgium, most French soldiers who were captured from bombarded forts claimed

"No one can stand up to Big Bertha's might" when in fact they had never been shelled by Big Bertha at all.

A weapon developed by the Americans during WWII and under research by other countries including Germany. The weapon is classified as either a Gun type or implosion type.

Gun type weapons are unreliable and do not provide a large blast, therefor rendering it obsolete. Though it is easier to make. The process includes accelerating a neutron(s) into a ball of Fissionable material and inducing a nuclear Fission reaction.

Implosion type weapons are in current use, though, not much, they detonate explosives around a ball of Fissionable material and create immense pressure which induces nuclear Fission. They generally have a higher blast effect.

The Atom bomb was deployed twice at Nagasaki and Hiroshima to end WWII. Though, their use is still hotly debated today. Atom bombs have become very obsolete since the development of Hydogen bombs, Cobalt bombs, and then Thermonuclear warheads.
NUKLAR EXPLOZON!

The Japanese surrender! The atom bomb worked!
