Credits 3

The History of Warfare from Ancient Times to the end of the Napoleonic era. In addition to examining the developments of warfare in terms of tactics, strategy, and technology, the course will set warfare in a social and institutional context as a major driver of change. Emphasis will be given mainly to Western military developments but we will also examine the way non-Western societies interacted, responded, and adapted to the Western way of war.
