Military Pedagogy in Progress


Hubert Annen and Wolfgang Royl

Armed forces need to prepare their military personnel for a global mission profile which requires conflict awareness and the acceptance of personal responsibility along with the ability to successfully cope with the military challenges of their mission. The aim of this publication is to demonstrate the progress in military pedagogy as it is evolving within the various national institutions for the education and training of officers and recruits. This will be helpful in illustrating common topics which, already at present, allow the questioning and exploring of educational ways of thinking as they determine national peculiarities in the training and education of soldiers.
