HIST 3666, U.S. Military History, surveys the development of American military forces from the Revolutionary War to the present day. Students will focus on the Civil War, the Spanish American War, the U.S. role in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

“ The course has enormous contemporary relevance as it allows students to better comprehend how the U.S. and its military approaches and addresses the national security threats that the U.S. faces in the 21st century,” said Dr. Russell Hart, HPU associate professor of history.

Students in the course will gain an understanding of the U.S. military’s organizational, tactical, technological, and strategic aspects.

“ Few Americans today remember that for much of its history the United States had a very small and ineffective military,” added Hart. “In the course, we trace {U.S.] military experiences from colonial times and the ‘baggage’ that was carried over from these struggles into the young U.S. republic.”
Hart explained that through this course, students will learn how the distinctive history of the United States has defined the “U.S. way of war.”
