Clifford J. Rogers is a professor of history at the United States Military Academy at West Point. He has also been a Leverhulme Visiting Professor at Swansea University, an Olin Fellow in Military and Strategic History at Yale, and a Fulbright Fellow at the Institute of Historical Research in London.

Rogers writes mainly on medieval military history. His War Cruel and Sharp: English Strategy under Edward III, 1327-1360 won the 2003 Verbruggen Prize awarded by De Re Militari.[1] He has also been awarded the Royal Historical Society's Alexander Prize medal and a Society for Military History Moncado Prize for his articles, some of which are collected in his Essays on Medieval Military History: Strategy, Military Revolutions and the Hundred Years War.

His Soldiers' Lives through History: The Middle Ages,[2] received the 2009 Verbruggen Prize. A podcast of a lecture based on part of that book, focusing on the soldier's experience of battle, has been posted by NYMAS, at http://nymas.org/podcasts.html. He is also the editor of the three-volume Oxford Encyclopedia of Medieval Warfare and Military Technology, which received a Distinguished Book Award from the Society for Military History,[3] The Wars of Edward III: Sources and Interpretations and The Military Revolution Debate, and co-editor of The Journal of Medieval Military History and the essay collection Civilians in the Path of War.

Although Rogers' work on Military Revolutions has found favor with many historians,[4] some (including Kelly DeVries[5] and John Stone[6]) argue that his analysis suffers from "technological determinism."
