Troels

Studying the MA War in the Modern World, opened several intellectual and professional doors for me. The broad, historical approach to the study of war gave me new knowledge and analytical tools for understanding today’s conflicts. In our discussions we engaged deeply with the work of the greatest theorists of war. My mind was opened to the enduring, as well as the changing, aspects of armed conflicts.
