In 1847, Dennis Hart Mahan (United States Military Academy, class of 1824) published the first official West Point military history textbook. In it, Mahan used historical examples to teach his cadets what the nineteenth century professors referred to as the “art of war,” the human aspect of armed conflict beyond the technical details of attack and defense. Roughly every thirty years since then, the USMA has updated its text to reflect new interpretations and new conflicts. Produced by Rowan Technology in collaboration with the USMA, The West Point History of Warfare is the latest iteration of this endeavor, updated for the digital age.
