Russian opposition leader Garry Kasparov suspects Vladimir Putin’s time is almost up. For most of 20 years, Kasparov was the darling of the chess world. Now, he’s applied his strategic skills to geopolitics. His new book, Winter Is Coming, is a deliberate reference to the famous Game of Thrones series.

This week on War College, Jason Fields sits down with Kasparov to discuss the former chess champ’s foreboding vision of the future. Kasparov points to climate change, the rise of non-linear war and the complacency of the West as signs that point to a dark and terrible tomorrow.
