Speaking on Ukraine & Urban Warfare

Today I was participating in a panel on Ukraine as part of our Strategic Leadership Development education (“Strategisk Chefsutveckling (SCU)”). I spoke on the Urban Warfare dimension, sharing some of the findings of a forthcoming book chapter in a forthcoming edited volume on Advanced Land Warfare: Tactics and Operations (Oxford University Press, forthcoming) that I am editing together with Assoc. Prof. Niklas Nilsson.

Excellent audience! Excellent questions!
