Doomed to Repeat It... Badly

National Review and Tamara are both lamenting the demise of Military History as an academic discipline at many top institutions. This is sad. War is one of history's fundamental states, shouldn't we study it?

There is good news. Military history is popular both as a subject for instruction and as a product for public consumption via books or other mass media. So it is unlikely to die and more likely that the "top" institutions will simply stop being "top" any longer. That is fine with me.
