Webinar : The Future of War – Prof Sir Lawrence Freedman & Dr. Antulio Echevarria

August 22, 2018

For the second webinar in our monthly series, two distinguished academics from different sides of the Atlantic join us to discuss The Future of War.

Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman from Kings College London, author most recently of The Future of War: A History and Strategy: A History will discuss how future wars were imagined by theorists through history and what lessons can be learned from this about our own current experience.

Professor Freedman is Emeritus Professor of War Studies at King’s College London. He was educated at Whitley Bay Grammar School and the Universities of Manchester, York and Oxford. Before joining King’s he held research appointments at Nuffield College Oxford, IISS and the Royal Institute of International Affairs. Elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1995 and awarded the CBE (Commander of the British Empire) in 1996, he was appointed Official Historian of the Falklands Campaign in 1997. He was awarded the KCMG (Knight Commander of St Michael and St George) in 2003 and was appointed in June 2009 to serve as a member of the official inquiry into Britain and the 2003 Iraq War.

Dr. Antulio J Echevarria II from the US Army War College is author of Military Strategy: A Very Short Introduction and Reconsidering the American Way of War. He will look at similar issues primarily from a US perspective.
