Hybrid War or Gibridnaya Voina?
Let us introduce a new book by Mark Galeotti "Hybrid War or Gibridnaya Voina? Getting Russia’s non-linear military challenge right". His new study explores the two parallel forms of 'non-linear warfare' and provides recommendations as to how the West can best respond.
The West is at war. Not a war of the old sort, fought with the thunder of guns, but a new sort, fought with the rustle of money, the shrill mantras of propagandists, and the stealthy whispers of spies. Often described as ‘hybrid war,’ a blend of the military and the political, it reflects both the way that war is changing in the modern world as well as Russia's attempt to divide, demoralize and distract the West as it asserts its claim to be a great power, with a sphere of influence and Ukraine and beyond. This study explores the two parallel forms of 'non-linear warfare' and provides recommendations as to how the West can best respond.
