….Combat and Tactics during the American Civil War (Advances in Military Geosciences)

"This book discusses the relationship between geology and fighting during the American Civil War. Terrain was largely determined by the underlying rocks and how the rocks weathered. This book explores the difference in rock type between multiple battlegrounds and how these rocks influenced the combat, tactics, and strategies employed by the soldiers and their commanding officers at different scales."

I do believe this book takes "nerd-ism" a step too far.

That said, as a geologist I'm interested.

At $110 USD per copy, I think I'll wait for the movie. But it is an interesting subject.
