Lieutenant General Sir Graeme Lamb is a retired British Army officer with 38 years experience and a former Commander of the Field Army. Currently he is spending a semester at Yale as a Jackson Institute Senior Fellow teaching the Middle East and Central Asia module of its Gateway to Global Affairs course.

In 2009, Lamb stepped down as Commander of the Field Army and returned to Afghanistan at the request of General David Petraeus and General Stanley McCrystal of the U.S. Army to play a key role in the counter-insurgency efforts there, attempting to reproduce his success in Iraq by persuading Afghan insurgents to abandon their arms. Today we talk with Lamb about his military experience and how it translates to the classroom.
