Ideas of war, strategies for warfare and its practice, and organizing principles of war all have rich and varied origins which have shaped the minds of those who conceive the next war. From the French defeat at Sedan in 1870 to the contemporary insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan, most claims from military futurists have been wrong, but remain influential nonetheless.

How can we predict new dangers by looking back at prior conflicts? What cunning plans might a future aggressor have in mind?

Sir Lawrence Freedman is emeritus professor of war studies at King's College London. In June 2009, he was appointed to serve as a member of the official inquiry into Britain and the 2003 Iraq War. Freedman has written extensively on nuclear strategy and the Cold War, as well as commenting regularly on contemporary security issues.
