That time of the year

Much like early modern military planners in April, I’ve been consumed with the beginning of the campaign season, otherwise known as the beginning of the academic year.

This semester I’m teaching Western Civ part deux, as well as my upper-level ‘European warfare, 1337-1815’ course. For those interested in the topics, here you go:
