As the Allied forces fought to crush the backbone
of the Axis powers in World War II, they
built scores of airfields and temporary roads,
seemingly overnight and frequently in marginal
locations under adverse weather conditions. The
job might have been impossible, and the war
might have been prolonged, had chemical soil
conditioners not been developed (Wilson and
Crisp 1975). With chemical soil conditioners to
stabilize soil structure and prevent the hastily
constructed landing fields from returning to
mud wallows, trucks kept rolling and Allied
planes were able to land and take off to push
the offensive.
