Military History enables the understanding of how different lived experience is from that of our past, yet how similar we are in our goals and values. Being able to learn from and appreciate everything we do, everything we use, everything else we study is the product of a complex set of causes, ideas, and practices. History and previoulsy learnt experiences allows us to provide the data to derive military policy and praxis going forward. Military History not only informs and enriches the discipline of history, but assists in providing the informaiton needed in a range of other fields including political science, sociology, and public policy.
