WG 2 is focusing on military history for military professionals and academic personnel.
Military history is one of the important branches in military studies. WG 2 helps to popularize forgotten topics. We are addressing a large variety of themes and topics: history of warfare and military practice, including matters related to strategy, operational planning, tactical doctrine, art of war, military operations, doctrinal subjects, military institutions, innovation in the past. We have the opportunity to have a multinational working group which is supporting broader perspectives.

The military history working group aims to improve knowledge of the history of warfare and military practice through practitioners’ research, communities of practice, and networks of learning. These processes are also subject to study and reporting to improve both individual and institutional practice.
