DHP P241: Policy and Strategy in the Origins, Conduct, and Termination of War

Course Description

This course employs case studies to assess enduring principles of war and their role in defending a nation's interests and objectives. The works of three military strategists and four political theorists are examined to develop an analytical framework for assessing the origins, conduct, and termination of war. This framework is employed to analyze six major historical conflicts: the Peloponnesian War; the Wars of Revolutionary and Napoleonic France; the American Civil War; World War I; World War II; the French-Indo- China War/U.S. war in Vietnam.
