Pretty easy, overall.
The course is very informative and the student learns much about warfare and it's impact on society from the 19th-century to the present.
War is a cruel, yet ever-changing factor of man's social standing. Despite the many contrasting views of war and it's place in human society, such as the realism of General von Clausewitz, to the excessive glorification of war by Heinrich Trietschke, all of the writers and military leaders were fully aware of the grim realities of war, yet they proceeded to educate the public on their own interpretation of it.

Advice for students:
Being an online course, make sure you have an excellent Internet connection. Make sure you keep up with the assigned weekly readings, and be sure to meet the deadlines for assignments and discussion posts. Also, remember that your professor is there to help you succeed, so don't be afraid to email him or her if you are having a problem. Finally, most importantly, and I can't stress this enough, make sure you put in the time. It will pay off for sure!
