The article begins with the constatation of frequent usage of the concept of military culture, beginning in1990s. Intra-disciplinary and contextual factors contributed to the broad embracement of this concept. Various theoretical conceptualizations and research strategies using the concept of military culture are discussed. Conclusion is that it is hard to find such definition of military sulture that would be allencompassing and opreationable. Nevertheless, the heuristic value of the concept lies in its ability to open up innovative themes and research perspectives, some of them completely unthinkable from within the horizons of the classic military sociology.
