Cadets on Campus: The History of Military Schools of the United States (2017) - Dr. John A. Coulter II, LTC USA (Ret), is now available from Texas A&M Press.

The educational format for military schools did not originate in the United States; however, the U.S. is now home to the largest number of military schools--- and since 1999 that number has continued to rise. Most likely, the oldest of the world's military schools was Ecole de Soreze established in 1682 in France. Military schools were established in the United States due to the difficulties faced by the Americans fighting for their independence. The enemy, the British forces, were commanded by officers educated at the Royal Military Academy and Woolwic. The French allies had officers educated at their various military schools, including that at Vincennes, which later moved to Champ de Mars.
