Summary
"This non-fiction book for 10-14 year olds explores the ways the environment--the weather, climate, or geography--influences the outcomes of wars. The historical examples examined are: Hannibal in the Alps, the US Navy during Typhoon Cobra (WWII), the Canadian Army in Passchendaele (WWI), the dispute between India and Pakistan over the Siachen Glacier, the Battle of Pichincha (a volcano), General Wei Qing vs the Xiongnu in the Gobi Desert, the US Army in Vietnam, Napoleon's defeat in Russia, and the Battle of Tora Bora"--
Summary
Offers ten historical accounts of incidents in which geography or climate have affected the outcome of military conflicts, including an ancient Chinese use of a sandstorm as cover for an attack and Napoleon's disastrous encounter with the Russian winter of 1812
