Chapter

Second part : 5 : 8

Observed lessons

  • Wheeled vehicles are not good in muddy conditions.
  • Lower, flatter ground, nearer water, tends to be muddier.
  • A value of mud is when it allows you to follow the tracks of your enemy.

Discussion

Water is often a nuisance and can cause all kinds of problem. Not only can it be problematic for vehicles, your troops also will not like being out in heavy rain. Rain varies by country, terrain and season. Know when rain is likely and plan accordingly.

When weather is dry and the ground is firm, you can make far faster progress. Plan your movements accordingly.

The principle of tracking can involve more than just muddy tracks. In modern times it may also use technologies from signal tracking to satellite images.
