Syllabus:

Warfare has been an important part of human life for at least 5,000 years. In this course, we look at the evolution of warfare over time and explore issues such as military technology, generalship, fortifications, supply, decisive battles, irregular warfare, as well as the experiences of common soldiers and the interaction of soldiers with civilians. The course is designed to be highly flexible to allow students to focus on a conflict of their choice (for example the Napoleonic Wars, the American Civil War, World War I or World War II). But we shall also be pooling our knowledge of specific wars in order to address larger questions about the character, development, and outcome of military conflicts.
