This essay seeks to show that military strategists have not only been acute philosophers of space but also philosophers of world history. The works of Albert Speer (Nazi Minister of Armaments), Friedrich Ratzel (father of geopolitics), A. T. Mahan (Admiral), Halford Mackinder (Geographer and Historian of England), Carl Schmitt (Nazi Jurist and military philosopher), Guilio Duohet (father of 'strategic bombing'), and Harlan K. Ullman (father of 'Shock and Awe') are considered in terms of the ways in which space has been militarized, or rather how war spatializes world history. The geography of world history has been the topos of war.
