Military History is a course designed to provide all students with a comprehensive survey of the history, principles, effects, practices and the profession of armed conflict. Students will use skills in cooperative learning, project development, and world-class standards of technical reading, writing, research, decision making and public speaking as they study the processes and principles of warfare in the context of the complexities of modern-day foreign policy. Students will develop an awareness of the awful realities of war through eyewitness accounts, oral histories, film, video, pictures and literature. They will also apply knowledge and skills in tactics and strategy in the context of historical situations, and through the use of computer simulations, to learn the lessons of military history in relationship to today’s unpredictable global environment.
