In this episode, John, David and Tim look at the question, what happens when the high-tech weapons run out and there is no decisive outcome in war? Modern war is expensive. States can afford fewer and fewer weapons over time leading to smaller force structures. Weapons are increasingly hard to replace. International private consortiums run much of the West's military production unlike in World War II and the years following that war when the state owned this productive capacity. So how will we replace combat losses? What will future war look like?
