Re: ISSF Forum 13 on “Why Isn’t There More Scholarly Evaluation of U.S. Wars?”

I'm guessing, given the roundtable's origin, that it was deliberately confined to political science (and even IR) scholarly evaluations of war, but it was nonetheless jarring to read this and see no mention whatsoever of the quite massive amount of scholarly military history that exists.

Could the authors define what they intend when they say "scholarly evaluations"? What scholarship? What discipline? What kind of evaluation (quantitative)?
