It’s Midsummer Night Eve here in Finland (with predictably crappy weather), so I’ll have to be quick before it’s time to start the barbeque.
I’ll just point the cursor towards two interesting papers on how the militaries of two very different countries deal with transformation in the 21st century.
Here’s Andrew McGregor’s study on Turkey’s arms industry and asymmetrical warfare. Haven’t read it yet, more later.
And here’s what France is planning. Note to EU: our friends in Paris want to set up a 60,000 man QRF force for the Union to tackle peacekeeping, or “crisis management” challenges.
