Western Way of War

Oct 15, 2020

The West has been losing wars for too long and needs to change, suggests James Heappey MP, UK Minister for the Armed Forces. Peter Roberts talks to the former soldier-turned politician about people, the future operating environment, the UK's Integrating Operating Concept, the enduring fog of war, and what needs to change. The discussion culminates in a recognition that decisions over military force structures (between those designed for below threshold conflict, and those for deterring major war) cannot wait any longer. It sets high expectations for the UK's Integrated Review over the coming months.
