Featuring animated maps, interactive timelines, 3-D imagery, custom artwork, and digital timelines, we have created the future of the past.

With The West Point History of World War II, we are sharing with you a portion of the two-semester History of the Military Art (MilArt) course that all cadets take as seniors. Cadet George S. Patton Jr. took MilArt in 1909 and Cadet Dwight D. Eisenhower took the course in 1915. Norman Schwarzkopf took the course in 1956 and future leaders are taking it as you read this.

At West Point, we don’t base our instruction on lectures. Instead we teach using the Thayer Method, named after Colonel Sylvanus Thayer who served as superintendent from 1817–1833 and who we call the “Father of the Military Academy.” Thayer believed in small classes where cadets were responsible for their education. Cadets today are also expected to come to class prepared to discuss the assignment.

While we can’t replicate that here, instructors share the questions that form the basis of each class. The best questions have no clear cut answers. Those are the questions we look for to drive classroom discussion.

We invite you to see World War II the way cadets at West Point see it. We have taught World War II to cadets continuously since 1943, long before the war was even over. While understanding World War II is vital for future officers, an informed citizen, even if he or she deplores war, should know about a subject that shapes who we are in the most elemental way.

Understanding war makes for better citizens: men and women who can help their elected leaders make sound choices the next time the nation is called to arms, or hold them to account at the ballot box if they do not.

The views presented here do not necessarily reflect the position of the United States Military Academy, the U.S. Army, or the Department of Defense.
