The Evolution of Warfare with Lord Roberts and Gen. Petraeus—Oct. 26
Two leading authorities—acclaimed historian Lord (Andrew) Roberts and General David Petraeus, the outstanding battlefield commander and strategist of our time—collaborate on a landmark examination of war since 1945. They will trace the evolution of warfare since the end of the Second World War up to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and articulate what we must learn from the past—and anticipate in the future—in order to navigate an increasingly perilous world. A book signing and author meet-and-greet will occur after the program ends. To register, please CLICK HERE.
