Sinopsis:

"This book fills an important gap in the literature. I endorse it enthusiastically not only to those interested in an unusual aspect of science, but also to military commanders at all levels who wish to use weather as an ally, rather than to face it as a foe."—Lt. Gen. Thomas S. Moorman, USAF (Ret.)

America's military weather forecasters have played a crucial role in the success or failure of military operations, such as the Normandy invasion of World War II and the aborted Iranian hostage rescue mission of April, 1980. Here is the story of America's weather warriors and their contribution to military meteorology, as well as to strategy and tactics. Based on interviews, letters, reports, and first-hand experience, the authors describe the human interplay and

personalized leadership that were so important in the birth and development of the U.S. military weather services.
