In this episode of the RUSI Analysis Podcast, experts Peter Roberts, Edward Schwarck, Igor Sutyagin and Ewan Lawson debate whether the formulation of strategy really does have any implications in geopolitics.

Does Vladimir Putin truly have a strategy, and does Russia need one to get what it really wants? Can Daesh’s strategy be understood by conventional Western thinking? And should states make their strategies clear to all, or keep their opponents guessing?

In his lecture to RUSI, Field Marshal Bramall shared his thoughts on the changing face of conflict. Drawing on his unique personal experience of soldiering at every level, dating from his service in the Second World War, he considered how warfare has changed. More importantly, he also reminded us of the lessons we should have been drawing from that and will offer guidance for the future with regards to strategy and execution.


Field Marshal the Lord Bramall of Bushfield KG GCB OBE MC is a British Army officer who served as Chief of the General Staff between 1979 and 1982. He was subsequently appointed Chief of the Defence Staff, the professional head of the British Armed Forces, and served in that role from 1982 to 1985. After his retirement, Field Marshal Bramall served as Lord Lieutenant of Greater London from 1986 to 1998. He was raised to the peerage in 1987 and further invested as a Knight of the Garter (the United Kingdom’s highest order of chivalry) in 1990.
