Welcome to the chair of History.
The history department contributes to the education of Belgian and foreign undergraduate officers by providing them with specific training in:
• the use of primary source materials, the problems of bibliography and historical method, the need to think critically about their sources as they gather them with a view to helping them in all fields of research work and personal development,
• major historical developments and events, with a view to helping them understand the circumstances of the military missions in which they may be involved in the course of their careers in Afghanistan, Lebanon or the Democratic Republic of the Congo,
• military history such as is not taught in civilian universities, including military operations with special emphasis on the two World Wars and contemporary armed conflicts.
