History of Albanian Military Education Until 1945

Edit Bregu



This paper addresses the origins of the Albanian military education and the changes it has undergone through from 1912 until now. One hundred years ago in Albania there was no practical possibility to prepare military officers in the country. This is because at that time there was no army, and, therefore there was no national military school in which military officers could get the proper education that they needed in order to serve to the Albanian country and to the Albanian people for defensive purposes. The paper deals with issue why in Albania in the years after the declaration of independence until the 1940s, military training and education in proper academies was impossible. The main reasons of course are strongly related to the lack of military educational institutions in the country. In this material will also be presented the innovations in the military education as well as the empowerment and size that it has undergone through during monism and the years of democracy, highlighting the advantages and the role of the military education in 100 years of the Albanian state.

Keywords: military school, military academy, military education, qualification, state.
