Western Way of War

The Royal United Services Institute
Society & CultureGovernment

A collection of discussions with those in the Profession of Arms that tries to understand the issues around how to fight, and succeed, against adversaries in the 2020s. We pose the questions as whether a single Western Way of Warfare (how Western militaries fight) has been successful, whether it remains fit for task today, and how it might need to adapt in the future? It is complemented by the ‘Adversarial Studies’ project that looks at how adversaries fight.

  • Bronk episode excellent

    Justin Bronk’s discussion of the challenges faced by western airforces is one of the best WWoW episodes yet. When considered alongside Jack Watling’s excellent episode on western special forces, it just shows how this RUSI podcast doesn’t have to look far for outstanding analytical comment, especially when compared to the often ambiguous rambling of some ‘external’ guests.
