Description
"Now join History for the fascinating story behind the handgun and its unlikely inventor--master artist and engineer, Leonardo da Vinci. While working for the Duke of Milan at the end of the fifteenth century, da Vinci was called upon to design fantastical new war machines. One of his inventions was the wheel-lock pistol, a weapon that allowed the user to fire a shot quickly and efficiently using only one hand. In this captivating program, learn how this revolutionary tool set the stage for the assassination of the Duke of Guise in 1563--an event that paved the way for the French civil war and changed the course of history forever."--Container.
