A century after “the war to end all wars,” British historian Jeremy Black draws on his new book A Century of Conflict to distill the lessons of conflict around the globe – from WWI to WWII to the Cold War and the Global War on  Terror, and all the smaller wars in between.  One of the world’s most renowned military historians, Black will also offer reflections on the value of military history and a peek into the future of war. Jeremy Black is Professor of History at University of Exeter and a Senior Fellow at Foreign Policy Research Institute. He has degrees from Cambridge and Oxford and has lectured and taught around the world. He is the author of over 100 books, including Maps and History and The Curse of History.
