The impact of the wheel on warfare

This podcast episode talks about the impact of the wheel on warfare.

I’m leaving this here because I believe there might be a few good insights in there about the common meaning of the wheel symbol 2500 years ago.

What’s the simplest item that’s changed the shape of warfare? The bullet? The boot? How about the humble wheel? In this episode of Loose Rounds, Adin and Angry Staff Officer trace the development of the wheel throughout history, and how it’s shaped how wars are fought on and off the battlefield.

Interesting! It does seem like there was a “militant” aspect to the wheel symbol that is easy to overlook in modern times.
