Prussia



   Prussia (pol. Prusy, ger. Preussen) - land at Baltic Sea, between lower reaches of Neman and Vistula River. This country was occupied by tribes of pagan Prussians. In XII c. those lands were conquered by the House of Hospitalers of Saint Mary of The Teutons in Jerusalem - the Teutonic Order, invited here by Polish duke - Conrad of Mazovia. This area was the object of constant wars between Poland, Lithuania and Teutonic Order (which in XVI c. became Prussians). After Second World War, under the Potsdam agreement, the land was divided between Poland and Soviet Union. After the fall of Soviet Union, Prussia is now a part of Poland, Russia (Kalinigrad province - oblast) and Lithuania.

The former Soviet Union has some military friendly colleges called academies where commissioned officers can do post-graduate work. Some U.S. higher learning institutions such as Kaplan University qualify as military friendly colleges because they offer the convenience of online study for active-duty service members and veterans.
