Military History

At the SEDU, the subject of Military History specialises in the study of strategy development, operations and tactics as a support for the subject of War Studies.

Military history is the scientific study of history where the role of the military is put into a greater political, economic and social-historical context. Traditionally, it has been used for analysing historical campaigns and operations with the purpose of establishing general doctrines and illustrating principles.

In our officer training and education, the study of military history can add essential understanding of complex processes as well as providing increased competence for commanders and leaders.
