2021 has been a momentous year for the British Army. In March
the government¿s Integrated Security, Defence and Foreign Policy
Review set a new path for the service with a shift towards hi-tech
weapons. Then the British Army found itself playing a leading role
in the funeral of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. At the same
time thousands of soldiers have been on duty around Britain
helping in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This special publication aims to look at how these events
unfolded and assess their implications for the future of the land
force. The volume includes the latest news about current
operations and overseas training exercises, as well as insights into
the latest equipment on order.
