There has always been a long-standing relationship between Geography and the military. In the book Military Geography: from Peace to War, Military Geography is defined as the "application of geographic information, tools and techniques to military problems". In the international arena, Military Geography enjoys recognition as a formal sub-discipline with its own speciality group within the Association of American Geographers. Military Geography: from Peace to War is a welcome addition to a rather sparse literature collection of this applied sub-discipline of Geography.
