Episode details

China and America are two of the world’s great powers. Their economies are intertwined, their military’s powerful, and their soft power spreading across the globe. And tensions are rising. Neither side wants to go to war, but both sides are committed to winning that war should the unthinkable ever occur.

Recently, War College’s own Kevin Knodell spent time at the Army’s Joint Warfighting Assessment at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington State. The weeks long training brought together military personnel from seven different countries to train together for a nightmare scenario—a new war in the Pacific.

Kevin is the producer of War College, but also a journalist whose work has appeared in Playboy, The Daily Beast, and McClatchy. He’s the co-author of several non-fiction graphic novels—including The ‘Stan and Machete Squad.
