Over the past 4000 years, weather and nature have both hindered and helped various campaigns and battles, occasionally even altering the course of history in the process. Today elements of nature still affect the planning and waging of war, even as we have tried to mitigate its impact. The growing concern over climate change has only heightened the need to study and understand this subject.
Tide of War is the first book to comprehensively tackle this topic and traces some of the most notable intersections between nature and war since ancient times.
