Dr. Alexander Hill delivers guest lecture in Canberra, Australia

Dr. Alexander Hill presented a paper at the 2017 Australian Chief of Army History Conference in Canberra this last week. The theme of the conference was 'The Skill of Adaptability: the Learning Curve in Combat' - how armies learn and adapt - or not - in new circumstances, and how we can derive best practice from historical examples for armies to learn and apply experience today. Papers will be published online shortly. Papers covered topics from the First World War through to coalition operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, and were given by both civilian and military academics.
