War in the Modern World
The programme will give students a comprehensive and up-to-the-minute understanding of modern military theory and operations in the light of the wide-ranging economic, social, technological and political changes in the world between 1945 and today. It will equip students to engage critically with scholarly debate about the conduct and nature of contemporary warfare, and to understand the contexts in which modern military operations take place.
