Professor Lisa Brady talks about how chemical agents were used during the Korean and Vietnam wars to destroy the landscape and infrastructure. She argues that during this time the U.S. military began to see foreign landscapes as an enemy rather than an obstacle. She also describes the reasons for various defoliation missions as well as the long-term damage to both the environment and the locals. This class is from a course called “Environmental History of Modern War.”
