Review

The Freakonomics of modern warfare (Conn Iggulden)

An important book (Sir Richard Dearlove, former Director of MI6)

Lively and provocative ... laced with examples from the history of conflict as well as his own career as a soldier (Sir Lawrence Freedman)

A thought-provoking book. Sean McFate has admirably captured the challenges we face with an evolving character of warfare. Technology and the pervasiveness of information have blurred the distinction between peace and war and have opened up seams that our opponents are ruthlessly exploiting, utilising weapons that don't need to go bang (General Sir Nick Carter, Chief of the Defence Staff)

Thought-provoking. Sean McFate puts his finger on key issues for Western security (Jonathan Evans, former head of MI5)

His iconoclastic book is being hailed by radicals as a wake-up call to governments and armed forces everywhere, to stop doing all the wrong things; to start doing a few right ones . . . Some of what he says makes more sense than much of what comes out of the Pentagon and the Ministry of Defence (Max Hastings, Sunday Times)

Radical thoughts on the West's approach to modern warfare (Sunday Times, Must Reads)

A well-crafted indictment of The West's failure to keep pace with the changing face of warfare. The soldier is taught to improvise, adapt, and overcome. In Goliath, Sean McFate shows The West how it can do the same

A fascinating and disturbing book (Economist)

Essential Reading (General Stanley McChrystal)
