The future of the Army in great-power competition

On May 17, 2019, Secretary of the Army Mark T. Esper joined us to discuss “The Future of the Army in Great-Power Competition.” This event was part of the Commanders Series, which is the Atlantic Council’s flagship speakers’ forum for senior military and defense leaders. In both his keynote speech and his conversation with Defense & Aerospace Report’s Vago Muradian, Secretary Esper focused on the six Army modernization priorities and on the implementation of Multi-Domain Operations, in order to better adapt the US Army to the era of great-power competition vis-à-vis Russia and China.
