The Perfect Officer: Lessons in Leadership

Author: 

Bering, Henrik 

Credentials: 

Henrik Bering is a graduate of Oxford University (Pembroke College) and has been a Professional Journalism Fellow at Stanford University. He is the author of Outpost Berlin: The American Forces in Berlin 1945-94 and Helmut Kohl: The Man Who Reunited Germany, Rebuilt Europe, and Thwarted the Soviet Empire. His essays and reviews have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, The Weekly Standard, The Los Angeles Review of Books, The New Criterion, and Policy Review.

The Perfect Officer focuses on the careers of a group of brilliant officers from the Napoleonic Wars and up to our own times: what they did right, what they did wrong, and what lessons they drew from their experiences. The book’s recurring theme is the importance of imagination, and it demonstrates how these men were constantly inspired by each other and borrowed each other’s ideas. A number of these lessons are equally applicable in the civilian sphere, with one notable difference: If a business leader errs, he may lose his position or his investment.

Cyber Security Meets National Security: International Perspectives on Digital Era Threats (St. James’s Series in World Affairs)

Author: 

Kent, Neil, University of Cambridge & Irina du Quenoy, Georgetown University (Editors)

Today more than ever, the line between national security and cyber security is becoming increasingly erased. As recent attacks on US infrastructure show (for example, the oil pipeline hack of 2021), nontraditional threats ranging from hacking for the purposes of extracting ransom to terrorist communications online are emerging as central to national threat assessment.

Bulwark of the Old Regime: France’s Royal Swedish Regiment in the French and American Revolutions

Author: 

Kent, Neil & Clément Chevalier

Credentials: 

Neil Kent is Professor and Fellow of the Scott Polar Research Institute, University of Cambridge, Author of Crimea: A History, St. Petersburg: A Cultural Guide, A Concise History of the Russian Orthodox Church, and many other books.
Clément Chevalier is a Captain in the French Army and a doctoral candidate in History at the Sorbonne.

In 1740, the French King Louis XV granted his Swedish-led forces the title of Royal Swedish Regiment, for which it received the same privileges as all royal regiments including the protection of the king, new flags, and ordinance. Louis XV acted to fulfill a request of King Fredrik I of Sweden and to demonstrate his satisfaction with the great value shown by the regiment in battle. This intriguing book traces the history of this storied regiment throughout its service, including during the American War of Independence, and up to the time of the French Revolution of 1789.

Battle of Biafra: British Intelligence and Diplomacy in the Nigerian Civil War

Author: 

Ignatus, Onianwa Oluchukwu, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Onianwa Oluchukwu Ignatus is a Nigerian historian. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Ibadan and is the author of Britain’s Injurious Peace Games in the Nigerian Civil War; Once Upon a Time in Biafra: Memories, Foreign Visitations, and Life Experiences in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970, and other books.

In this intriguing new book, Onianwa Oluchukwu Ignatus examines the role of British intelligence in the Nigerian Civil War. British intelligence operations were highly successful due to a decentralized approach. Britain maintained regular supplies of arms to Nigeria despite considerable opposition at home. Thus, up-to-date information was necessary to determine the military behavior of both sides and the practicalities of arms supply for Nigeria.

In May 1945, as World War II drew to a close in Europe, some 30,000 Russian Cossacks surrendered to British forces in Austria, believing they would be spared repatriation to the Soviet Union.

Russia’s Military Interventions in Georgia and Ukraine: Interests, Motives, and Decision-Making

Author: 

Ismayilov, Elnur, Ph.D., University of Münster

In Russia’s Military Interventions, Elnur Ismayilov analyzes Russia’s recent military interventions in Georgia and Ukraine by assessing the driving factors – the interests fueling Russian involvement and the decisions that fostered the resulting wars. Ismayilov covers the creation and transformation behind Russia’s post-Soviet perspectives on Ukraine and Georgia and explores the panorama of post-Soviet Russia’s foreign policy from the 1990s up to the turbulent present, in which Ukraine and Georgia’s pro-Western orientations have remained a core concern of the Kremlin.
