How to Select a Military History School
Students will study many war philosophers, such as Abraham Lincoln, Mao, Clausewitz, Thucydides and Ho Chi Minh. These writers, leaders and theorists are as important to a student of military history as any tactics. Study of these military leaders will help students to understand the motivation of various countries for beginning and continuing the wars in which they were involved.
Also consider the following when looking for military history schools:
- A military history program should require classes in the history of militaries and military encounters, from ancient to modern times.
- The school should also offer classes in government, military theory, political science, sociology, battle narratives and war literature.
- The student should find on his or her desired school's website the faculty involved in the military history program.
