Military History

The University of Kansas has a rich tradition in military history. Over the past thirty years, more than 35 students have completed M.A. degrees emphasizing military history, and more than twenty students have earned Ph.D. degrees in this subfield of history. The KU Department of History has enjoyed a close association with the faculty, research programs, and students of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, located in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, just thirty miles north of Lawrence. KU faculty and graduate students have access to the extensive holdings of the Combined Arms Research Library at CGSC. As well, since its inauguration in 1986, Modern War Studies, published by the University Press of Kansas, has become, arguably, the most outstanding book series anywhere in the field of military history.
