Conflict : the evolution of warfare from 1945 to Ukraine / General David Petraeus, Andrew Roberts.


In this deep and incisive study, the former CIA director General David Petraeus, who commanded the US-led colations in both Iraq during the Surge and Afghanistan, and the prizewinning historian Andrew Roberts explore more than seventy years of conflict, drawing significant lessons and insights from their fresh analyses of the past. Combining their different perspectives and areas of expertise, Petraeus and Roberts show how critical mistakes have often been repeated time and time again, and the gravity of the challenge, for statesmen and generals alike, of learning to adapt to various new weapons systems, theories and strategies. Among the conflicts examined are the Arab-Israeli wars, the Korean and Vietnam wars, the two Gulf Wars, the Balkan wars in the former Yugoslavia, and both the Soviet and coalition wars in Afghanistan, as well as geurilla conflicts in Africa and South America. Conflict culminates with a bracing look at Putin's disastrous invasion of Ukraine, yet another case study in the tragic results when leaders refuse to learn from history, and an assessment of the nature of future warfare. Filled with sharp insight and the wisdom of experience, Conflict is not only a critical investigation of our recent past but also as essential primer for waging battle today as well as for understanding what the decades ahead might bring.
