With the eruption of war in the Middle East and Europe and tensions flaring in the Taiwan Strait, the American-led international system seems to be at an inflection point. The number of geopolitical flashpoints from the Sahel to the South China Sea is increasing at an alarming rate, and many are beginning to doubt the United States’ ability to deter hostile, revisionist powers across the globe.

Join Hudson Distinguished Fellow Walter Russell Mead for a discussion with critically acclaimed historian Andrew Roberts and General David Petraeus on their new book Conflict: The Evolution of Warfare from 1945 to Ukraine, which provides a penetrating analysis of the last 70 years of military history, highlighting many of the critical lessons that we should draw from past wars. This insightful text helps explain how the US military can anticipate the rapidly evolving threat environment in an increasingly dangerous world to best prepare for the wars of the future.
