Database Content

HeinOnline’s Military and Government allows users to research the functions of the federal government in administering these essential armed forces. It also looks at the issues confronting service personnel both on and off the battlefield—from women’s changing role in the military to the development of new weaponry to navigating benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs after service. With funding to the Department of Defense making up the largest portion of the U.S. federal budget, users can also find publications devoted to debating and accounting for appropriations and other funds spent.

Start your research with primary source documents such as committee prints, government reports, congressional hearings, legislative histories, and the entirety of three Code of Federal Regulations Titles (6, 32, and 38) and multiple relevant U.S. Code Titles (6, 10, 14, 32, 34, 37, 38, and 50). Supplement with thought-provoking books, serials, periodicals, and scholarly articles, carefully curated and added to this database for their analyses and discussions of military life, operations, administration, and related issues.

Finally, also find the entirety of the Pentagon Papers in a fully searchable format, allowing researchers access to these essential documents for understanding foreign policy, the Vietnam War, and chain-of-command decision-making.
