Earlier in the year, The Strategy Bridge announced its first annual writing contest, inviting university and professional military education students to participate.
The winning entry, written by Richard J.E Brown of King’s College London, is a beautifully constructed paper that examines the origins of nuclear non-proliferation ‘grand’ strategy which, he argues, predates the iconic moment the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.
The introduction of nuclear weapons has had a profound effect on international strategy. As Richard explains, ‘It is important to recognise the roots of grand strategy and to understand that all such strategies invariably draw on previous experience’.
The Cove would like to congratulate our friends and mentors at the the Strategy Bridge on a fantastic fifth year. We look forward to following their continued growth in the years to come.
