War Theory (WT)
Academic Year 2022
War Theory introduces military theory, addressing both the nature and character of war. It examines the theoretical writings of classical military theorists, as well as the evolution of warfare and military thought over the last two centuries. The course explores a number of the most outstanding historical cases of military innovation, assessing the utility of military theories across the military domains. The course also considers the future evolution of warfare, analyzing both change and continuity in armed conflict. In applying military theory to contemporary security challenges, students will be able to better anticipate and respond to operational problems across the range of military operations.
