War In Modern World - 83453 - HIST 3940 - 001
The War in the Modern World course is a chronological review of the people, events, and trends that affected the development and employment of the United States Army from its colonial beginnings thru the present. Students will combine directed readings, individual research, and classroom instruction to learn about the evolution of the institution, different theories of wartime expansibility, synergies and tensions between the Regular Army and the Reserve Components, tactical organizational changes, growth of the profession of arms and professionalization of its members, and important technological developments. We will spend some time on the application of the Principles of War to selected tactical and operational level battles and campaigns. Throughout the course, students will analyze themes from history to identify an “American Way of War”, assess the manner in which it evolved, reflect on the effects of that Way of War on them personally, and project requirements for change.
