With today’s global challenges and weapons of the future, what are France’s ambitions?

A new age of war is looming. Digital technologies, robots and stealth weapons have changed the game. On the battlefield, victory no longer depends on the courage or the bravery of the fighters, but it depends on the best and most advanced equipment. This revolution has taken place, and at the same time the cards have been redistributed among the major powers. What strategies will the United States, China, India, Russia, and France adopt? What customs of war will be adopted in the near future and in the long-term?

These are the questions raised in Christian Malis’ book. From the factories of the Brazilian Navy warehouses to the Directorate General of Armaments, this book describes a world in which nuclear weapons are only one type of weapon among many. He invites us to look toward space, the new combat zone where robot fleets will soon become a deterrent.
