The Weekly Recap: Turkey Plays 'Hail to the (Ex) Chiefs' While Germany and France Build Secret Ships

About this Podcast...

The Weekly Recap: From false Libyan missiles to the folding of US Army's Joint Forces Command, we fully immerse ourselves in the week's noteworthy headlines. Defence Dateline columnist Jonathan Dowdall also has the opportunity to try out his German when it comes to commenting on Franco-German naval production ambitions (via ThyssenKrupp Marine). Beware the 21st of August, when we find out what really happened with this secret ship-building deal. Indeed, all that German proved a mouthful, but Senior Editor Robert Densmore got his two cents in with recent developments in Turkey. 'Hail to the (ex) chiefs' might be an appropriate soundtrack to this story, but uncertainty still looms as the current Islamist government wrestles for constitutional control of the military.
