An integral part of the course will be the writing of a term paper 5-6 pages long. In the paper the student will examine a single war and discuss how that war and its results influenced the development of military organization, strategy OR technology. The Term Paper IS NOT to be a simple overview of a particular war from American history. Any such submission will be treated as “off topic” and graded accordingly. In this paper, students are expected to use several external sources (as well as the course text). Any direct quotes and any information not considered “common knowledge” must be properly cited in footnotes or (preferably) endnotes and a bibliography must accompany the paper. Notes, the bibliography, and the paper text must conform to Chicago/Turabian Style, though the notes and bibliography do not count toward the overall length requirement.
