Operation Telic, 15 years on

Operation Telic, 15 years on


Join Brigadier (retired) Ben Barry as he discusses UK operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, 15 years since they began. Operation Telic is the name for the British deployment in Iraq which began in 2003. Ben Barry will analyse British military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan following the ‘9/11’ terrorist attacks on the United States. He will explain why success often proved elusive as a result of failings in strategy, tactics and military adaptation. Finally, he will discuss the lasting impact of these difficult wars on the UK armed forces.
