When Experts Attack! #19: A ‘realistic’ war movie would be just 10 minutes long

Guest Steve Leonard, a retired senior U.S. Army strategist, is program director in organizational leadership at the University of Kansas School of Business. He’s editor and co-writer of the book “Why We Write: Craft Essays on Writing War,” an anthology featuring dozens of contributors who share their military tales and offer advice to others who they hope will do the same. Leonard has provided chapters to the books “Strategy Strikes Back: How ‘Star Wars’ Explains Modern Military Conflict” and “Winning Westeros: How ‘Game of Thrones’ Explains Modern Military Conflict.” He’s also the creative force behind the subversive web comic “Doctrine Man!!” and its four collected volumes. Lastly, he’s a senior fellow at the Modern War Institute at West Point and co-founder of the podcast “The Smell of Victory.” The Idaho native has spent the last five years at KU, where he specializes in leadership, strategy and the science of decision-making. In this episode, Leonard tells When Experts Attack! correspondent Jon Niccum a ‘realistic’ war movie would be just 10 minutes long.
