Abstract:

Studying military history is both necessary and critical to successful accomplishment of future military engagements. Comparisons of military events in history such as Task Force Smith and the 507th Maintenance Company, Counterinsurgency in the Philippines and Iraq, and Reconstruction in both the Civil War and Iraq demonstrates how history has a tendency of repeating itself. History helps us understand how the society we live in came to be. Additionally, it is critically important to arm our Soldiers with a better understanding of the past and develop leaders who understand war.
