In this episode of the MWI Podcast, we talk to Gen. David Perkins, the commander of the US Army Training and Doctrine Command. In that capacity, among his many areas of responsibility, is playing an important leadership role in the development of the Multi-Domain Battle concept. According to this framework, victory in future military conflicts will require an ability to bring decisive power to bear across multiple domains—air, land, and sea, but also space and cyberspace. But what will this actually look like, in practice? What will it mean for the way we structure combat units? How will it change the way we train and equip for war? There’s nobody better situated to address these and a range of other fascinating, and sometimes difficult, questions about Multi-Domain Battle than Gen. Perkins.
