Course overview

The broad historical narrative on this course aims to provide you with the opportunity to explore specific military themes in depth, to contribute to the wider academic debate on the relationship between the military and society, and to conduct original research.

Why Study Military History with us?

In principally addressing the study of British military history, both within the European context and the wider world, the course seeks to explain why wars occur, highlight how warfare has changed through the ages, and to show how the military interacts with wider human society

The County of Shropshire and the town of Shrewsbury have a long association with the British military, and there is a wide range of relevant and accessible source material relating to the study of British military history deposited locally and regionally.
