Is it important for military professionals to take time out of their busy schedules to study history? As leaders in both the past and present have realized, the past serves as a predictor of the present and the future. Successful leaders are able to analyze past events to determine a plan of action for present and future events. If it is deemed important for military professionals to devote time to the study of history; when and where would it be inserted into their busy schedules? Do we allocate time in the curriculum of military service schools or is it delegated to unit level to conduct such training? If the study of history is mandated, how can it aid in the professional and personal growth of military professionals?
