Summary
The world's strongest armies discover that nature can be a secret ally--or an unbeatable foe. Not even the most formidable troops can match the power of nature. In these 10 stories, well-armed forces set off to battle human enemies, but instead find themselves fighting the environment. -- p. 4 cover
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."--Provided by publisher.
