On April 25, it was announced that an interview with Forward Defense nonresident senior fellow Max Brooks will be included in The History Channel’s upcoming two-part documentary series “The Great War” premiering on May 27-28.

“The Great War” explores the critical years of 1917 and 1918, weaving together the stories of three different groups showcasing how their separate, yet intertwined narratives, experiences, immense contributions, and extreme adversity faced during those pivotal years of battle culminate to tell one larger, more complex story of how an isolationist America reluctantly entered World War I and emerged a global power.

Forward Defense, housed within the Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security, generates ideas and connects stakeholders in the defense ecosystem to promote an enduring military advantage for the United States, its allies, and partners. Our work identifies the defense strategies, capabilities, and resources the United States needs to deter and, if necessary, prevail in future conflict.
