Interview with Andrew Roberts about his book Conflict: The Evolution of War from 1945 to Ukraine, co-authored with David Petraeus. Discusses the differences in the way nations and allied forces prosecuted wars in the 20C versus today; his strong support for Israel in the current conflict in Gaza both in the media and in the House of Lords; and why Ridley Scott (the director of the recent film biography of Napoleon) is wrong when he says that historians are not to be trusted because “they weren’t there” when they describe historical events.
