Sir Lawrence Freedman is Emeritus Professor of War Studies at King's College London and the UK’s leading expert on military strategy. His expertise has made him the go-to voice for clear-sighted analysis of the war in Ukraine since Vladimir Putin first invaded in early 2022. In this episode he joins Mark Galeotti, an expert on modern Russia and honorary professor at UCL SSEES, to look back at a range of conflicts, from the Cuban Missile Crisis to Russia’s wars in Chechnya plus its current one in Ukraine, and to discuss the tension that exists between military decision-making and civilian priorities. Sir Lawrence Freedman's book, Command: The Politics of Military Operations from Korea to Ukraine, is available now.
