Warfare, has been used throughout the centuries by kings, emperors, and rulers to protect their land and more so their people. There are two types of warfare, one being that of traditional warfare which generally, consists of leaders using mass armies to conquer the opposing side, however, changes in technologies and weapons meant that leaders had to rethink the way in which they fought battles. The use of gunpowder weapons changed the way in which battles were fought dating back as early as the late 13th century with the introduction of the bronze-barrelled cannon (Rietbergen, 1998). Bacon argues that with the introduction of the new technology, the way in which the state observes the rest of the world has changed. That is, trade routes made it possible for the spread of gunpowder weapons that until the end of the 13th century was not possible (Rietbergen, 1998).
