207 | David Kilcullen: Insurgencies, Resistance, and Russian Strategy and Tactics

For day three of The Realignment's near-daily Ukraine coverage, Marshall spoke with Dr. David Kilcullen, a theorist and practitioner of guerilla and unconventional warfare. They cover the present state of Russia's invasion of Ukraine and whether the conflict could transition into a drawn-out war of resistance/insurgency.

Dr. Kilcullen's perspective is drawn from a 25-year career in the Australian Army and postings to the U.S. Defense and State Departments during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He is a professor at Arizona State University and the University of New South Wales and the author of The Dragon and the Snakes: How the Rest Learned to Fight the West, The Ledger: Accounting for Failure in Afghanistan, Out of the Mountains: The Coming Age of the Urban Guerilla, Counterinsurgency, and The Accidental Guerilla: Fighting Small Wars in the Midst of a Big One.
