The Thirty Years' War will be the prism through which the conference will look back at the Reformation and forward toward developments in the decades that followed. The conference will (re)consider the position and significance of the Thirty Years' War in the context of Reformation history. For example, do events in the sixteenth century look different in light of the war's eruption and resolution? How does this event fit into the larger century of armed conflict in Europe, e.g., the reforming movements, the "Long Turkish War," the changing balance of power around the Baltic.

Die Organisation und die Praktiken der Verwaltung des frühneuzeitlichen Militärs sind, ebenso wie die eng damit zusammenhängenden, auf die Kriegführung bezogenen Bereiche der Logistik und Infrastrukturen bis heute im Großen und Ganzen Randthemen der Frühneuzeitforschung geblieben. In der Vergangenheit wurden diese Aspekte im Rahmen der Untersuchungen zur Herausbildung der Stehenden Heere und Flotten zwar mitbetrachtet, sie standen aber nie im Fokus des Interesses. Und das, obwohl seit dem 19.

9th conference on new researches in military history, organised by the British Commission for Military History.

Since ancient times war has been conceived of not only as a means of destruction but also as a generative process that demands expertise and innovation. This ambivalence is exemplified by the Greek goddess Pallas Athene, who represented not only war but also the arts and sciences.

Nachwuchsworkshop Militärgeschichte unterstützt vom AKM

Politische Gewalt und Bedrohungen für die staatliche Sicherheit sind häufig nicht mehr durch den klassischen Dualismus "militärische Invasion von aussen" oder "Rebellion/Revolution im Inneren" charakterisiert, sondern gehen vielmehr oft von transnationalen paramilitärischen Netzwerken aus. Das gilt nicht nur in Bezug auf die medial sehr präsente Gefahr durch dschihadistischen Terrorismus.

Die Tagung dient dem intensiven Austausch deutscher und französischer Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler über den Ersten Weltkrieg und dessen Erinnerungskulturen in Literatur und Kunst.

By the summer of 1917 the fighting on the Austro-Italian Front had been going on for two years. At first sight, the Italians were largely unsuccessful in their endeavours as the Austrian forces could prevent a large-scale breakthrough. However, the position of the Austrian army was increasingly precarious as it was threatened by the Italian advance along the Lower Isonzo and the exhaustion that was a consequence of a gruelling war on three fronts. Therefore, the Germans finally decided to help their ally on the Italian Front.

To mark the re-opening of the National Army Museum following a £23 million refurbishment, a conference is being held to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the first recruitment of women into the non-nursing branches of the British Army. It is also the 25th anniversary of the disbandment of the Women's Royal Army Corps and the absorption of female soldiers into the army as a whole, and a year on from the announcement that women were eligible to perform close combat roles in tank and infantry units.

Jahrestagung 2017 des Arbeitskreises Militär und Gesellschaft in der Frühen Neuzeit (AMG)

Die Militärgeschichte ist wie jede andere Geschichtsschreibung von einer bestimmten Situation der Quellenüberlieferung geprägt. Diese Überlieferung ist vielfältig, aber bislang selten systematisch in den Blick genommen worden. Neben Quellentypen, die auch in anderen Feldern der historischen Forschung in gleicher Weise existieren und ausgewertet werden, wie etwa Selbstzeugnissen oder Gerichtsakten, gibt es spezifisch militärische, wie etwa Festungsarchitektur oder Geschütze.

Conference to be held at the Royal Air Force Museum in conjunction with the Air Power Studies Research Group, King’s College London at the Joint Services Command and Staff College

Since Operation DESERT STORM, air power has increasingly become the military tool of choice for Western governments. Air power has played a major role in conflicts since the end of the Cold War as part of state responses to violence in this period.

The historiography of World War I has been largely built upon the basis of separation between the History of battles on one side and occupied populations and the home front on the other. Nonetheless, to reason with this image is to forget that World War I, as total warfare, has set new means of meeting, coexisting and cohabitating between the civilian and the military spheres.
