The future of military history in colleges and universities

Posted by Daniel Sauerwein on April 12, 2008

There is a great article on the state of military history in American colleges and universities, which is linked by Mark Grimsley’s blog and published in US News and World Report. Justin Ewers poses the question in the title of his article “Why Don’t More Colleges Teach Military History?” The article is quite telling and can serve as an indictment for the academy of today, as while military history is a popular field, most historian positions are not in that field. You the reader may decide the validity of Ewer’s claims.
