EPISODE 016 John Spencer


ASSET: John Spencer

Mark chats with John Spencer, an author, thinker, soldier, and Chair of the Modern Warfare Institute at West Point, dedicated to improving understanding of warfare - past, present, and future. John served in Iraq and retired from the Army as a Major. He specializes in Urban Warfare and, in an increasingly urbanized world, it's necessary to understand cities as systems of flows, e.g. goods and services, people, information, weapons. Fighting in urban environments is virtually unavoidable in the 21st Century. John also explains the extensive methods the Army has used to contain, control, and redirect insurgency in urban environments.
