Strategy Strikes Back-How Star Wars Explains Modern Military Conflict. What does modern military conflict have in common with Star Wars? Major Matt Cavanaugh, author, contributor to The Gazette and Manitou Springs resident, will explain how the Star Wars movie franchise has much to say about real life warfare waged in our own time and place. 30+ top military, and strategic specialists, diplomats, counterinsurgency strategists, war journalists, sci-fi writers and ground-level military officers explain the art of war through the Star Wars films. The program is 30 minutes followed by Q & A. Join us for this very interesting and educational program. Refreshments will be served.
