MILH637 The Seven Years War (3 semester hours)

This course is a comprehensive study of the “first global war” as events unfolded in Europe, North America, the Indian sub-continent, and on the seas during the 18th century. Students discern, as a prelude to the American Revolution, how the practice of warfare among the eighteenth century nations was firmly established among European nations. In the distrust and distaste among the French, British, and Americans, the Seven Years War set a pattern that has remained central to the American way of understanding our colonial history.
