'Why We Write' Series - The Angry 'Young' Man
I write because I am angry. That is probably not what The Forge editors were looking for when they asked me to contribute to this series, but hear me out; there is a nuance in that statement.
The 'Why We Write' Series
The Forge editors are proud to present our first series, entitled 'Why We Write'. The series will showcase some current ADF military writers, with the intention of encouraging others, particularly at the rank of O5 and above, to consolidate their thinking and experience into a written form. The contributions are very honest and open accounts of why officers have chosen to contribute to the discourse on the myriad matters that affect the military profession.
