Sean McFate, adjunct professor in the Maxwell-in-Washington program and author of "The New Rules of War," was recently a guest on NPR for the segment "An expert explains why Putin seems to be using an outdated military manual."

"I see last century's war happening in this century. And it's puzzling because Putin is a—he's been a leader in modern warfare not in terms of it being morally good, but in, as you said earlier, hybrid war," says McFate. "So it's really curious. He's going back to the 1940s."
