HST 216: U.S. Military History, Colonial Times to Present
This course traces the American military from its pre-colonial origins to the present. It addresses the relationship between the American economic and social systems and the nation's military, and addresses the effect of the nation's geography on the mission and organization of the military. Key conflicts such as the American Revolution, the Civil War, the Second World War, and the Vietnam conflict are addressed in detail in an effort to discern if there is a unique "American Way of War."
