The Chief of Defence Staff's Reading List

Chief of Defence Staff, General Sir David Richards

The list will present contemporary works in a modern format. The aim is to allow readers to graze over a wide range of texts and to attract them into deeper and more extensive reading.  In an indication of the way that military capability is generated in the UK, General Richards’ list is available not just to those in military uniform, but to a wider audience that reflects Defence’s ever-closer partnerships – be they international, cross government, or with civil partners, industry, and reserve forces. 

The list is available at: www.da.mod.uk/recommended-reading.  It promises to be a handy ‘one stop shop’ for anyone interested in the strategic security context.
