Pretty easy, overall.
Not only was the content of this course fascinating but Professor White was an amazing instructor as well. He made coming to this class enjoyable and I looked forward to it every week. The way he taught made it easy to pay attention in class and the content was so interesting and unique that it quickly became my favorite class.
The course objective was to educate students about the different strategies of warfare from weapons to maneuvers, as well as to outline the major battles throughout the course of history. I loved seeing how the weapons changed throughout time and how different countries and leadership figures had varying ideas of strategy and surprise. This course provided me with an in depth look at the major players of each engagement, the circumstances surrounding the battle and decisions, the strategies and outcomes of each battle, and its impact on history and years of warfare of come.

Advice for students:
The best piece of advice I can give is to take detailed notes in class. Professor White presents each battle as a story and tells it as one from start to finish. I found that writing notes in story form as he was talking was the best way to make sure I didn't miss anything. Tests were comprised of essays and short answers that would be taken right from his stories in class. If you took good notes and studied them like a story, you will be golden. If you have trouble understanding any part of the story or strategy, don't hesitate to ask questions. Professor White is very friendly and willing to help anyone who asks.
