Abstract : The Symposia are intended to serve a number of purposes. First, they provide a forum for scholars in military history, a field that has grown rapidly since World War II and one in which the Academy obviously has a special interest. Second, by bringing distinguished scholars to the Academy, the Symposia provide a link between the scholar and the military professional. At a time of serious internal stresses in American society, all such links are generally valuable. More prosaically, however, the Academy's history faculty is kept abreast of developments in their academic discipline, while cadets are encouraged to a continuing interest in the background of their chosen profession. Third, by the participation of historians who do not consider themselves primarily 'military' historians, but who are competent in areas that impinge on military affairs, the field of military history itself is enriched.
