The Strategy Bridge podcast features interviews on strategy and history.

Mar 24, 2019

In 1967, a short book called Military Strategy: A General Theory of Power Control was published by a naval officer named J.C. Wylie. Over the years the book developed a devoted following despite being generally neglected and is considered one of the important books on strategy to come out of the 20th century. In this episode of the Strategy Bridge Podcast we are joined by Dr. Nick Prime to talk about “Military Strategy” and its intellectual history. Prime recently completed a PhD at King's College London focused on Wylie and the control school of strategy. He was the Smith Richardson Predoctoral Fellow in naval and strategic studies with International Security Studies program at Yale University.
