SEST 526 - Advanced Military Operations
This course will examine conventional military operations from the period of World War I to the present.  The course format will consist of a mixture of roughly 50 percent military and 50 percent description of how modern military forces are organized, equipped, and trained for conventional combat operations.  Students will develop an understanding of how military forces have evolved during this period as well as how military technology has changed in the past century and how those changes gave influenced the way operations are conducted.  While the majority of the course will focus on conventional combat, there will be some reference to so-called “low intensity” operations such as counter insurgency, in so far as those types of operations have had a bearing on how conventional forces prepare for and conduct operations.

The course will start with a brief overview of the state of military art and science at the turn of the 20th Century.  This will be followed by an overview of 20th Century military campaigns that will continue into the early 21st Century.
