Episode 13: Season One Wrap-Up

In this conclusion to the first season of A Call to Arms, Tessa Winchester, Military Sciences Rising Star mentee, interviews series host Andy Young.

Andy shares his thoughts on some of the pressing questions still facing the UK’s armed forces as they adapt to evolving geopolitical and environmental challenges. It is clear from the first series that defence is facing several less obvious, but convergent, challenges which require political leaders to set a clear vision, structure accordingly, and optimise the lived experience of armed service personnel.
