The 'Why We Write' Series

Introduction

"The Forge editors are proud to present our first series, entitled #WhyWeWrite. 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."
