(p.101) 10 The Battle for Military History
The Organization of American Historians and the Writing and Teaching of American History

Edward M. Coffman

Oxford University Press

This chapter on military history begins with a battle for acceptance of the field by other professional historians. Although that effort has enjoyed some success and military history is much admired and read outside of academe and among undergraduates in colleges and universities, its practitioners have generally not regarded the Organization of American Historians as supportive. Nevertheless, the chapter concludes that the “future appears to be brighter than some military historians think”.
