One of the best geography departments in the world is the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering at West Point. Year after year they have been part of the Association of American Geographers’ Military Geography Specialty Group giving excellent presentations on military geography. The best speech, in my mind, was about climate change and temporary global cooling affecting military maneuvers during the American Civil War.
The department has released some of their regional geography works to the public. The series is dedicated to key countries in this global age. The works document geomorphology to medical geography and everything in between. Currently viewable are North Korea, Iraq, and Afghanistan. They are books in pdf form and average in at about 10 MBs so be patient because the wait is worth the reward of geographic knowledge.
