King of Swords

 

The coronation of the nuclear bomb.  It's the sword that can annihilate a city, a few of them can end the world.  It's a weapon so deadly that it's mere existence changed the way mankind thinks of war.  It's the point at which humankind's means finally exceeded it's goals.  1945 was the end of one world and the birth of a new.
