Principles of War Podcast

By The Cove November 18, 2019

The Principles of War Podcast is designed to educate Officers and Senior NCOs about doctrine through the lens of historic battles and the Principles of War. They also endeavour to prepare leaders to perform better in the Post H-Hour execution phase by studying leaders and how they have reacted to the situations they have faced.

Victory is a poor educator for students of military affairs and the real lessons are bourne from defeat. Those lessons are very expensive for whoever pays the price, and that is why the study of defeat bears sweeter fruit.

  • Learn from yesterday to fight better tomorrow.
  • Study, learn and practice military innovation.
  • Remember and honour past sacrifice.
