Show Notes

Technology is rapidly changing the modern battlefield, making it crucial for armies to adapt how they think, fight, and train. But what should that adaptation look like? How can the US Army, for example, evolve at the tactical level to both meet the challenges and leverage the opportunities brought about by advancing technology? How should Army leaders and other decision-makers approach the hard choices they face—about everything from procurement to force structure to commitments across Europe and Asia? And what will be required to achieve deterrence in an era of rapid change? To explore these questions, Dr. Alexandra Chinchilla is joined on this episode by retired General Robert Abrams, Dr. Jack Watling, and Major Ryan Van Wie.
