General Sir David Richards launches Army publication

Posted on 11/11/2009

London: Speaking at the launch of The British Army, a major new official publication, General Sir David Richards, Chief of the General Staff, emphasised the importance of "innovative thinking" to tackle multiple threats to UK and allied security, as well as risks to trade and energy supplies.

The publication, which General Richards said was designed to provoke such thinking, was edited by Chris Donnelly, Director, Institute for Statecraft and Governance, and written by a wide range of journalists, industry specialists and Service personnel.

The British Army challenges established thinking about the Army and seeks to inform the wider, non-military audience about its role in defence.

The launch at the House of Commons on 11 November 2009 was attended by the media, MPs, as well as Ministry of Defence and British Army officials.
