The Arts of War


EP374 - The Arts of War

Course Description


Course Summary

As one who aspires to a career in the profession of arms, you can't go wrong by exploring the various ways in which writers, artists, and filmmakers have come to terms with the subject of war.  One recent version of the course has asked questions like these:  Was the Great War all that great?  Was the Good War entirely good?  How has the First World War affected and shaped modern memory?  Why is Hollywood still revisiting the experience of World War II?  Whatever a given version's approach, it is worthwhile to traverse the territory of human conflict with creative figures who have attempted to capture at least part, if not all, of the truth of war.  Cross the line of departure to a heightened awareness and appreciation of the aesthetic and moral dimensions of the military experience.
