After much controversy over its publication, British Generals in Blair’s Wars was launched at The International Institute for Strategic Studies on Wednesday 17th July. 100 or so key members of the press, senior MoD/business advisors and top tier Generals attended (including a guest appearance by David Richards – newly retired Chief of Defence Staff).
The event took place at Arundel House with guests being treated to a discussion about the book with one of the editors, Hew Strachan (Oxford), Nick Parker (former Deputy Commanding General in Iraq and Afghanistan) and Desmond Bowen (former UK MoD senior civil servant). The meeting was chaired by Brigadier (Retd) Ben Barry, Senior Fellow Land Warfare at the IISS, and is available to view on Youtube.
