Summary
Since the beginning of military history, weather has played a significant role in the successes and failures of military campaigns. Today, even with all its highly sophisticated weaponry, the U.S. military still carefully incorporates weather forecasting into its battle plans. In this program, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Peter Arnett shares anecdotes from his personal experiences reporting on wars and explains how weather has been a factor in those conflicts.
