The 11th Baltic Military History Conference 2020 will be conducted by the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL) in partnership with the Estonian War Museum – General Laidoner Museum and the Estonian Military Academy.
This academic event will take place on 22nd and 23rd of September at the BALTDEFCOL. The theme of the Conference is "Small but Capable? Quality Against Mass in Military History" and this year there are two possibilities to participate – personally or as an online listener.
The Conference will provide an opportunity to debate whether quality or mass is the keyword in Military History. In the European military thought, beginning with Classical treatises on Greek and Roman warfare, quality is often regarded as more important than mass. Within the panels, our guest speakers will present their views based on analysing several battles taking into consideration the implications of lessons learned for present challenges.
We are delighted to announce that Prof. Martin van Creveld, Prof. Emeritus at the Hebrew University, will be the keynote speaker of the Baltic Military History Conference 2020, and Brigadier General (ret.) Michael H. Clemmesen, the First Commandant of the Baltic Defence College, will provide closing remarks. Further information and registration in the conference website
