HIST 484 - U.S. Wars-Korea and Vietnam


3 credit hours
This course examines recent military experiences of the United States in terms of the traditional American way of preparing for and waging war. To do this the course considers the emergence of a military policy following World War II that was unique in the American experience. As national policy changed in response to the communist threat, the armed services adapted to the new demands of a hostile world. Thus, permanent readiness for war became a part of American life during the Cold War. Historical inquiry will focus on military tactics, operations, and strategies; grand strategy; foreign policy; domestic politics; international diplomacy; social impacts; and lessons learned. Prerequisite(s): HIST 101  or 103 , HIST 102  or 104 , and HIST 212 . (Cross-listed with HIST 584.)
