British operations since the end of the Cold War have spanned the full spectrum of military commitments – from limited, short and sharp demonstrations of force in Sierra Leone and Libya, through to the intense and drawn-out campaigns of Iraq and Afghanistan. As the UK looks ahead to the 2015 SDSR and operations in Afghanistan wind down, a new RUSI book, Wars in Peace, audits the last quarter-century of military intervention.
At this launch event, two of the book’s authors, Professor Michael Clarke and Professor Malcolm Chalmers, discuss the key findings of the book and, looking ahead, their relevance to the future of British military intervention. Further panellists will be confirmed in due course.
