Well, Air Force became a well respected independent branch of all fighting forces of the world, and the word "air superiority" first fully cemented n WWII. In the first world war, Air Force was more or less an extension to Army. WWII was the first time large scale military maneuvers were planned using AIr Power.

Also, innovations & combat doctrine also began in WWII....namely night fighting, airborne artillery (one *can* argue C-130 type gunships shares conceptual heritage w/ the Stuka of WWII) are some of the advancements I can think off rite off the bat. Let's also not forget jet propulsion (Arado/ Me262) and radar which also made its entry during WWII.

One of the most advanced pieces of technology made for war in that time period was the M1 Garand. It was a great piece of technology in that time.

E2020: U-BoatWorld War 1 was known as the "War to end all Wars". There were many things within the war which did not represent advances in technology. For instance, digging of a trench was not an advancement in technology, as that has been done for hundreds of years. Hand to hand combat also does not represent an advancement in technology.

The advances in military technology like gas masks and the tank wouldn't have occurred until later. However, the absence of World War I, and thus World War II, would have had no effect on things like computers and microwaves.

Technology advances hugely in every war. In WW2 it made better radio, radar, atomic weapons, faster fighters, bigger bombers, and better vehicles.

Many civilian vehicles were modified for military use and many specialist vehicles were invented. Tanks in particular made rapid advances in technology in WW2. This war also gave the world the Jeep and efficient all-wheel drive trucks.
