Summer Reading: 2 Academic Military History Reading Lists Worth Checking Out

These are the books military wonks must read.

The University of Southern Mississippi offers an odd list of 40 books with which every graduate student in military history should be familiar. How many have you read? I was surprised at how few. Some of the books listed here aren’t even the best on their given subject. And then there are books that are responses to books that aren’t listed. But to each his or her own.

By contrast, this list, from the University of North Carolina, is much more coherent. A really good summary of what anyone studying military history should have read.
