This website is dedicated to the understanding of organized violence for political purpose. On its pages are resources and arguments about how military force is constituted, organized, and employed in the pursuit of national objectives. To that end, a vast range of subjects are engaged — strategic objectives, civil-military relations, land warfare, naval warfare, intelligence, and others. The purpose is to neither celebrate nor shrink from war, but to understand its causes, its employment, and its effects.

Established as a companion to a political science course on the Language and Grammar of War offered at Towson University (TU), most of the comments are from TU undergraduates. That said, posts, comments, and insights are welcome from students and faculty at other academic institutions — as well as the general public.
