Product description


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)

Thought-proving. Sean McFate puts his finger on key issues for Western security (Jonathan Evans, former Director General of the British Security Service)

A well crafted and strongly worded 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. (Geraint Jones)
