LISTEN NOW: GENERAL SIR BARNEY WHITE-SPUNNER

General Barney White-Spunner discusses his time as Britain’s commanding officer in southern Iraq; and the difficulties faced by the Army being engaged in two major operations, Iraq and Afghanistan, at the same time.

His service was dominated by the struggles that overshadowed the world order at the turn of the twenty-first century: the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq. He talks freely about his experiences serving in these theatres, reflecting on the struggles faced due to lack of manpower and resource while fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.
