« back to classes page
The American way of war has evolved immensely throughout the past 246 years. In just over two centuries, the United States has transformed itself from colonial militias into a colossus on the world stage. This class will concentrate on the evolution of the American way of war by focusing on the American Revolution, the Mexican War, Civil War,  Vietnam War, World War I, and World War II. We’ll look into the evolution of strategy, equipment, and generalship. We will not only study the battles as they occurred; but together we'll discuss what was the cause of victory or defeat. If you are ready to enter the minds of Washington, Lee, Grant, Pershing, and Bradley, this is the class for you.
