The World Affairs Council of Boston

Presents a luncheon with…

General Wesley K. Clark, U.S.A. (Ret.)

Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, 1997-2000

General Clark will discuss his new book, Waging Modern War, which recounts his experiences as Supreme Allied Commander. His book offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at how war was actually fought, and explains the conflict’s surprising implications for how war will be waged in the decades to come. An excerpt from Waging Modern War: 

"In most of the twentieth century, wars were fought for territory. The survival of nations-or at least their systems of government-was at stake. It was a national warfare, relying on the mobilization of populations, vast conscript armies, and national controls over the economy and the flow of public information. Military men were trained to fight to win.… Operation Allied Forces wasn’t to be that kind of war.… This war wasn’t about national survival, or the survival of our democratic systems of government. We didn’t mobilize our populations or do anything in particular to affect the control of information.… This was a different type of war-a modern war."
