Brian Cloughley spent a total of eight years in Pakistan, first as deputy head of the UN Military Mission in Kashmir, then as Australian defense attache, and has deep knowledge of the army's structure, personalities, and capabilities. He visits the country regularly and updates its defense details for global military news website IHS Jane's Sentinel. He lives in the village of Voutenay-sur-Cure in Burgundy, France.
"Written in the bluff style of Jane's Defence Weekly, Cloughley's straightforward but sympathetic coverage of campaigns, strategy, and materiel remains unrivalled for detail."-Times Literary Supplement
