Arden started his academic career in Amerikan Orta Okulu, Talas-Kayseri, Turkey, as a teacher of English during 1958 - 1960. Then he took the position of teacher of history at Latin School of Chicago during 1965 - 1970 and was a professor of history at the State University of New York College at Brockport since 1970. Moreover, he was a codirector of program at Brunei University, Uxbridge, England, in 1987 - 1888.
Apart his academic career, Arden also wrote books. His work "Moltke, Schlieffen, and Prussian War Planning" was named “one of outstanding books in military history” by International Commission on Military History in 1991. This book analyses the first deep-future orientated war planning system, which originated in the Kingdom of Prussia in the early 19th century. Prussia offers a unique case history because of the role its war mechanisms assumed within the bureaucratic forms of the modernising state. Validated in the wars of German unification, these bureaucratic processes were extended into the Second Empire after 1871 and were subsequently employed for both the First and Second World Wars.
Bucholz evaluates the Prussian General Staff as a knowledge organization. In that vein, a more systematic use of organized knowledge promoted more specialized personnel and led to greater organizational complexity. The author points to the use of topographic map sets, historical essays, intelligence reports on foreign armies, proposed war plans, and regular sequential war games as examples. Thus, Bucholz fairly credits Prussia with creating the four main core competencies of twentieth-century warfare: organizational, representational, educational, and analytical.

Quotes from others about the person
Bucholz is a brilliant professor. Yes, he requires you to think and work to earn your grades, but he's incredibly helpful and will answer whatever questions you have. He's open to any (reasonable) point of view as long as you have the evidence and thoughts to back it up. I intend to take as many classes as I can from him, B is a very effective prof.
