Report on a RUSI conference on urban warfare in conjunction with the Institution of Royal Engineers and the Royal Engineers Historical Society on the 75th Anniversary of the German capitulation at Stalingrad.

RUSI convened a conference on urban warfare on 2 February 2018, in conjunction with the Institution of Royal Engineers and the Royal Engineers Historical Society. The conference took place on the 75th Anniversary of the German capitulation at Stalingrad and used the battle as an anchor for discussions.

The conference was designed to stimulate a discussion over the nature of urban warfare for the British Army, to determine whether engagements in this environment had changed and if so, how. Army personnel participated in the conference along with around 180 international delegates from the academic, government, military, non-government, charity and industrial sectors.
