Analysis of the military history of the United States from the colonial period to the present.  This course considers the role and use of armed forces in relation to the social, cultural, political, economic, and technological development of the United States.  It will not only address such themes as wartime strategy, operational tactics, and combat technology, but also the impact of warfare on society and on the remembrances of ordinary men and women in uniform.  Significant attention will be given to the evolution of civil-military relations, the advent of professionalism in the military, the non-military uses of the military, and the military’s role as a tool for global power. Prerequisites: Any 3 hours of HIST and ENGL 133W  .
