Military Geography involves the application of geographic information, tools and technologies to military problems — across the spectrum of military operations from peacetime to wartime. History is replete with examples of the influence of terrain, weather, climate and culture on combat operations during war. Military problems, however, are immutably linked to geography regardless of the context in which they occur. This book retains the wartime focus of “traditional” military geography, yet broadens the scope of the subfield to incorporate a wide range of Stability and Support Operations (SASO), as well as peacetime endeavors. Notwithstanding its purpose, the conduct of any military enterprise is conditioned by the character of the area of operations--the military operating environment. This book focuses on the synergy between geography and military operations wherever they occur.
