(same as HIST 2560). Explores the development of warfare around the world from circa 1300 to the present. Course materials devote equal attention to operational military history (combat, strategy, tactics, weapons systems, etc.) and the study of war and society (the various ways in which armed conflict impacts and reflects life beyond the battlefield). Additional focus on issues of cultural representation and historical memory. May also be taken for credit with cross-listed history courses on specific topics if these are being offered instead of HIST 2560. Graded on A-F basis only.
