This course will review amphibious landings from the Greeks and the Romans to the Korean War. In the class, we will focus on the mechanics, equipment and tactics of warfare and will examine how they have evolved over time. Included will be Syracuse and British invasions; Hastings, 1066; Gallipoli, 1915; Tarawa, 1943; and Inchon, 1950.
