Professional Military Education | The Principles of War Podcast

Episode One: The most Manouevrist Campaign the Australian Army has ever fought.

We look at how the Principles of War podcast is going to work, what we want to do and how we are going to do it. We discuss how terrain plays a part in the outcomes of battles and we will be looking at leadership.

Episode Two: The Japanese and Allied Centres of Gravity for the Malaya Campaign

The Centre of Gravity is that characteristic, capability or locality from which a force, nation or alliance derives its freedom of action, strength or will to fight. For the British, the CoG was the Singapore Naval Base.  It was the fundamental part of the defence of the whole of South East Asia.
