Violation of academic ethics will result in an investigation and possible removal from the course. You must include the question you are answering on your title page. Keep in mind that while you may discuss the implications of your answer for today’s military, THIS IS A HISTORY PAPER. DDE will assess your ability to use history as a tool for informing professional judgment, which is one of the terminal learning objectives for the block. Choose ONE of the following two (2) topics: 1. Which aspects of the Western way of war best characterize warfare in the age of Napoleon? Use evidence from H100 to substantiate your argument. 2. Which theorist best characterizes the nature of World War I – Jomini or Clausewitz? Use evidence from one of these theorists and from H100 to substantiate your argument. (D) Final considerations To do well on the H100 argumentative essay, you must do the following: 1. Use evidence (specific examples) from H100 to substantiate your argument. The essay is worth 60% of the block grade, and providing evidence in your writing is a REQUIREMENT. 2. Make sure you are answering the question being asked. Read the question thoroughly. 3. Do not provide a simple summation to the question. You must write an argumentative essay, and hence argue your point of view supported by specific examples and/or theory from the H100 block of lessons. 4. Demonstrate your ability to use history as a tool for informing military judgment. 5. Use the Turabian style of documentation to cite your sources. Use either footnotes or endnotes; do NOT use parenthetical citations. 6. You may use outside sources; however, the H100 course materials are sufficient to answer the essay topics. 7. Do not use Wikipedia or other uncontrolled internet sources as they are not subject to the same level of scholarly review or fact checking. Wikipedia is NOT reliable for academic research.
