The one-day conference ‘Mobilising Resources for War’ will take place on December 10th 2019 at The Old Library, All Souls College.
Fighting wars involves more than simply an ability to pay for them. This one-day conference examines how states and semi-state actors have secured resources ranging from manpower to arms and ammunition, between the sixteenth and mid-twentieth centuries across the globe. The event is part of collaboration between Oxford’s History Faculty and the Sir Michael Howard Centre for the History of War at King’s College London since 2017 examining key themes in human conflict across time, space and cultures.
