Over 100 films featuring everything from ‘How to shoot a longbow’ and 'Shooting the mighty trebuchet' to stunning video clips from castles across Europe and the Middle East.

Over 500 images, including beautiful archive materials from the Middle Ages.

A dynamic map where you can locate all of the castles, battles and sieges featured in the app.

Computer generated 360 degree spins around major castles and siege weapons.

"Timeline WW2 offers museum-quality app interaction....It's a groundbreaking application in that it fully realizes the museum experience, providing a nuanced exploration of a huge amount of data......for any fan of the History documentaries, this is sure to be a perfect gift or self indulgence. It's beautiful, it's expansive, and it's a great demonstration of what the iPad can do at its best."
