Estonian Yearbook of Military History asks if past helps to prepare for future wars 01.05

In the newly published ninth issue of Estonian Yearbook of Military History military historians and professors of military history from six countries discuss the possibility of learning from past experience for both the military profession and national defence.
Topics of the Estonian Yearbook of Military History 9 (15), 2019: The past – a soldier’s guide for the present? Experience, History and Theory in Military Education include studying and teaching military history, theoretical problems in historical research as well as the role of military history in the military doctrine and strategic culture of different countries. Case studies range from the medieval period through the 20th century.

„The question, if history helps us to prepare for the future wars, is ever topical, because only wars fought in the past are available for study,“ the editor, Senior Researcher of the War Museum Kaarel Piirimäe said commenting on the new issue.

„This yearbook is a valuable reading for everyone involved in organizing and conducting military training,“ Piirimäe continued. He expressed hope that military history researchers in Estonia and abroad as well as all others interested in the field will find something for them in the new issue.

The Estonian Yearbook of Military History 9 (15), 2019 is based on papers presented at the 9th international military history conference The past – a soldier’s guide for the present? Experience, History and Theory in Military Education, organized by the Estonian War Museum and the Estonian National Defence College in 2018 in Tartu, Estonia.

The book is available in Amazon and the stores of Tallinn University Press and the Estonian War Museum.
