ABOUT

The West Point History of Warfare is revolutionary step forward in digital learning.  A groundbreaking collaboration between Rowan Technology and the United States Military Academy, this fully immersive and interactive text provides an entirely new way to visualize and understand historical conflict.

This comprehensive survey - covering military history from Ancient Greece to the present - is the authoritative source on military history.  First developed at the United States Military Academy - world's preeminent military institution - in 1847, the text was designed to teach the “art of war”: the human aspect of armed conflict beyond the technical details of attack and defense. 

Continuously updated to reflect the rapidly-evolving state of armed conflict and its increasingly complex interpretations, the text has now been completely reimagined and redesigned for the digital age.
