A Scientific Way of War
- Antebellum Military Science, West Point, and the Origins of American Military Thought - Studies in War, Society, and the Military
- By: Ian Clarence Hope
- Narrated by: Kevin F Spalding
- Length: 9 hrs and 23 mins
Drawing from a wide array of materials, Ian C. Hope refutes earlier charges of a lack of professionalization in the antebellum American army and an overreliance on the teachings of Swiss military theorist Antoine de Jomini. Instead, Hope shows that inculcation in West Point's American military curriculum eventually came to provide the army with an officer corps that shared a common doctrine and common skill in military problem solving.
