Got some thoughts about the future of war? Please consider sharing them.
You’ve probably already read what New America Foundation is thinking about the future of war. Next up, I am going to run some solicited essays on the subject. But I also want to open the blog up to others, so I am now announcing the Best Defense future of war blog post contest. This is open to all readers. Please keep your submissions relatively short — I want posts, not War College essays. It might be best to write about a topic with which you are personally familiar, or have studied. But if you want, you can write under this title: “What we should be thinking about the war after next.”
The no. 1 winner will be invited to a private session of the New America team when it meets with experts. The top three runners-up will get a signed copy of one of my books, or maybe one of Peter Bergen’s if you prefer and if I can talk him into it.
Please send them to this e-mail address (and btw this link also leads to an easier way to read this blog).
