The Military in Germany and the United States

HISTORY296

The Military in Germany and the United States. Explores the history of the military in Germany and the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries. Examines German and U.S. armed forces as distinct institutions and reconstructs their pursuits in war and peace while paying considerable attention to soldiers’ languages and experiences. Situating the two militaries within the larger fabrics of their respective states, societies, and cultures, we will explore the relationships between military and civilian realms, peoples, and discourses. In so doing, we will compare and contrast two ever-shifting military experiences and explore the ways in which they were entangled. One course.
