Welcome

Warfare is a powerful but often neglected dimension of environmental history, and the environmental legacies of conflict are only a peripheral dimension of military history studies. This site brings together researchers and their work on all aspects of warfare’s environmental consequences — through history and around the world. This emerging area of historical scholarship interacts with several widely recognized fields, including environmental history, historical geography, military history and geography, war and society, and the role of the state in organizing and maintaining preparations for war. The military dimension of environmental history encompasses military establishments before conflict, the course of conflicts, and the consequences of wars, both immediate and long-term.
