ABSTRACT
The article discusses why military history matters. Of all fields of history, military history is among the most popular. Military historian Allan R. Millett argued that military history matters for the same reason that all history matters. It affords a window into the human condition and the nature of human societies: an especially useful window because war often places extreme pressure on those societies, exposing strengths and weaknesses.
