Listen on

Episode notes

Major General Charlie Herbert has stood out in recent months for his vociferous condemnation of Israel’s war on Palestinians. His media appearances have proven vital in synthesising a moral and strategic critique of war in which civilians are treated in a manner he characterises as unprecedented.

He sat down with Ash to talk about serving in Northern Ireland in the 80s, conscription and why Israel’s plan for Gaza will not work.
