About this lecture series

Lectures of Opportunity (LOOs) offer Naval War College (NWC) students, faculty and staff an opportunity to learn more about national and international socio-political subjects that may be of relevance to the NWC community.

Synopsis

The talk will discuss the assumptions America's leading strategic theorists made about the nature of war in the twentieth century. It will use Clausewitz's concept of the trinity to highlight which dimensions of war (socio-cultural, military, and political) American theorists either privileged or neglected, and whether new ones were added, and why.
