In 1847, Dennis Hart Mahan (USMA 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 United States Military Academy has updated its text to reflect new interpretive ideas and more recent conflicts. The West Point History of Warfare represents the latest iteration of this endeavor and takes the concept of what a textbook can be to exciting new levels.
