With the fall of the Western Roman Empire much of Europe was hurled into a period of instability and deterioration. Various new contenders entered into the European scene and began competing with those already present in the creation of a plethora of new political entities all attempting to reestablish themselves as the dominant power in Europe. Many of these formative states would be the foundations for modern European nations. This period was crucial in the development of modern Europe and has had a great impact on much of the world. A major feature in the formation of these kingdoms was warfare.
This Course will examine the development of tactics, strategy, military equipment and organization throughout the Medieval Period (c.500-1500 CE). As well it will focus on several specific campaigns and battles to see how these events and developments applied to and affected warfare.
