Latest Articles In Military/War

This category and its content are concerned with different aspects of military, from service to its hierarchy and one of the oldest providences of mankind called war.

The first written record of the word military dates back to 1585. The term itself at that time was spelled militarie and it is derived from the Latin word miles meaning solider. The present day term, as a noun, represents the armed forces of a country, while as an adjective it refers to soldiers and the matters of soldiering. The term is also used to define certain association with the profession e.g. Royal Military Academy.

The commonly accepted contemporary definition of military is that they are the armed forces of a state and their purpose is to protect the interests of that state and its citizens by means of lethal force. Other than defense, military forces are also used in the state of war against another country in an offensive manner.

In a state of peace, as opposed to war, military forces may provide other services or engage in a number of activities within the state. These services and activities may include the promotion of a political agenda, protecting corporate economic interests, internal population control, construction, emergency services and various social ceremonies. Other civil related matters in which military can participate are housing, schools, utilities, food production and banking.
