How have wars shaped the French Society? How have French men and women gone through these traumatic times, since the French Revolution until today? Beyond addressing a history of Wars per se, explore what French society represents within this context. What was the relationship between the "Citoyen-soldat" and "The Other": Women, the Colonized, the Enemy? Through this three-centuries panorama of French conflicts, gain a knowledge of both French society and the various methods and approaches to better understand the phenomenon of war, in all its universal complexity. In French.
