An Eighth Day View:
From the doomed campaigns of Roman legions and Napoleon to the fate of U.S. forces in the South Pacific and Vietnam, torrential rain, brutal winters, monster typhoons, and killer hurricanes have had far-reaching -- and often terrifying -- consequences. As Erik Durschmied vividly describes in dramatic vignettes, the elements have decided human history as often as the spear, bullet, or atomic bomb. Drawing upon extensive research, as well as the author's own experiences in Vietnam, "The Weather Factor" gives a fascinating account of the inevitable collision between weather fronts and human conflict.
