Approximately one-fifth of the earth's surface consists of desert, and throughout history these arid regions have witnessed some of the world's most decisive battles.
In the first of significant new series by top authors who examine different spheres of warfare and the special demands they make on the world's fighting forces, Bryan Perrett gives an absorbing account od desert conflicts from the first century BC to the present-day Iran/Iraq war.
As he demonstrates, acclimatization and familiarization with the day-to-day problems of desert life are vital not only to teach troops how to protect themselves and their equipment, but also to bring them to terms with the harsh environment. The desert does not compromise, and battles fought there results in total victory or total defeat, often at horrific cost.
