Sean McFate will chat about and sign his latest book The New Rules of War: Victory in the Age of Durable Disorder.

The book is an urgent exploration of warfare—past, present, and future—and offers ten new principles—many of which confront the entrenched status quo—we must follow in future military engagement if we want to win.

While weapons, tactics, technology, leadership, and objectives might change over time, war itself is timeless, as is our desire to go into battle. But in this devastating, difficult time, what does battle look like? What is the future of war? How can we survive? And if Americans are drawn into major armed conflict, is victory possible?

To answer these questions, McFate calls upon the legends of military study, as well as his own experience, to carefully construct the new rules we must understand and implement in future military engagement if we want to win. Some of these principles are ancient, others are new, but all will permanently shape war today and tomorrow.

Sean McFate is a Professor of Strategy at the National Defense University and Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. He served as a paratrooper in the US Army’s 82nd Airborne Division and is also a former mercenary. In The New Rules of War, he argues that we are living in an age of Durable Disorder—a period of unrest created by numerous factors: China’s rise, Russia’s resurgence, America’s retreat, global terrorism, international criminal empires, climate change, dwindling natural resources, bloody civil wars, and more.
