Michael O'HanlonWhat happens if we bet too heavily on unmanned systems, cyber warfare, and special operations in our defense? In his new book, The Future of Land Warfare (Brookings Institution Press, 2015), Michael O’Hanlon offers an analysis of the future of the world’s ground forces. Dr. O’Hanlon considers a number of illustrative scenarios in which large conventional forces may be necessary, and he asks hard and challenging questions about which situations might require significant numbers of American boots in the future. This talk is the first event of the IWP Global Impact Discussion Series.

Dr. Michael E. O’Hanlon is a senior fellow and co-director with the Centre for 21st Century Security and Intelligence, and director of research for the Foreign Policy program at the Brookings Institution, where he specializes in U.S defense strategy, the use of military force and American foreign policy.
