Military history is arguably the last stronghold of what historiographers call the ‘Whig interpretation’. Reduced to its simplest terms, this approach sees the development of warfare as progressive. From the Macedonian phalanx, through the legions of Rome and the grenadiers of Frederick the Great, to the panzers of Nazi Germany and the information-age warfare currently touted in US military circles, the conduct of conflict is presented as becoming more sophisticated and more effective.
