RUSI convened its 19th annual Land Warfare Conference from 4–5 June, organised in partnership with the Chief of the General Staff, to explore how land forces can secure advantage in an era of constant competition. Held during the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the conference not only sought to look ahead at emerging concepts and capabilities, but to reflect on historical experience. As adversaries develop increasingly effective strategies to circumvent the strengths of the ‘Western way of war’, the conference attempted to explore how land forces can maximise their advantages and mitigate their vulnerabilities while contesting all domains.
