Dr. Harlan Ullman, a retired US Navy captain who is now the chairman of the Killowen Group consultancy and author of 10 books on military strategy, discusses lessons from the US-led wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, flawed strategic assumptions that contributed to failures in both countries, why America wins battles but loses wars, how warfare is changing, how to think about China and Russia as adversaries, countering domestic extremism and disinformation, and a military education system for the future with Defense & Aerospace Report Editor Vago Muradian. This conversation is sponsored by General Atomics Aeronautical Systems and devoted to the memory of one of the nation’s greatest national security strategists, Andy Marshall, the former director of the Pentagon’s office of net assessment.
