British Army Review 175 – Summer 2019

Welcome to the British Army Review (BAR) 176, Autumn 2019. Despite the summer leave period, a number of key events have taken place which will fundamentally change our approach to the Profession of Arms. First, the RUSI Land Welfare Conference 2019 took place in June, where CGS gave the keynote address highlighting the need for us to revolutionize our thinking and focus on how we fight, rather than just modernizing our current capabilities, if we wish to prevail in the future. To do this, we must challenge our institutional norms, question our received wisdom and change our cultural approach to conceptual development.
