HIS 3823 - American Military History (3) [GenEd: HS]

When Offered: Fall; Spring, Even-numbered years. (Summer Session 1, Odd-numbered years.)
GEN ED: Historical Studies Designation; Integrative Learning Experience (Theme: “War and Peace”)
This course explores the American military experience from its origins in the colonial period to the present day. It is designed to view military history from a variety of angles, through multiple perspectives and formats, and to broaden students’ views of the American military establishment. We will examine traditional military topics, such as strategy and tactics, and combat operations, as well as exploring “new military history” topics, such as the interaction between war and society, civil-military relations, and the social history of soldiers. We will also explore how political, social, and cultural factors have influenced the nature of warfare and the military institution in American history.
