Description

EN The conference focused on following subjects: What is the proper relationship between experience, the study of history and theory? What is the position of history in military pedagogy? To what extent should armed forces, beside tactics, study the political, cultural and social contexts of fighting a war? How important is it to understand the civilian perspective on the conduct of war? How can one assure that history is taught “in width, in depth, and in context”, as Michael Howard suggested – meaning the tracing of the development of warfare in a long continuum, analyzing it in detail (battles and campaigns), and counting in political, social and economic factors?
