100. THE FUTURE OF WAR: A HISTORY

From U-boats and nuclear arms to 9/11, the reality of war almost always contradicts expectations, less because of some technical or engineering dimension, but more because of some human, political, or moral threshold that we had never imagined would be crossed. Professor Sir Lawrence Freedman, one of Britain’s foremost military thinkers, will show how past misconceptions of the future of war should make us wary of current thinking about future conflicts.
