9781611454390: The Weather Factor: How Nature Has Changed History

From the author of The Hinge Factor comes a thrilling, page-turning series of dramatic historical re-creations revealing how the fate of humankind has often been decided by the uncontrollable, unpredictable power of weather. From the doomed campaigns of the Roman legions and Napoleon to the fate of US 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 heart-stopping vignettes, the elements have influenced human history even more than 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.

Review:

Durschmeid brings an eye for the telling detail. Independent (HINGE FACTOR) His tales of mayhem and confusion can be gripping, informative and genuinely idea-provoking. He reveals again and again, the casual impact of happenstance. Independent (HINGE FACTOR) This entertaining book considers the errors and incidents that have shaped the world as we know it rather than as we planned it might be. The Times (HINGE FACTOR) His vivid descriptions of battles explain all. Choice, London (HINGE FACTOR)
