This website is dedicated to understanding 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. A vast range of subjects are engaged — strategic objectives, civil-military relations, land warfare, naval warfare, intelligence, and others.

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 and faculty. That said, thoughtful posts, comments, and insights are welcome from students and faculty at other academic institutions — and from the general public.
