The first full analysis of the second Nagorno-Karabakh War—the first war in history won primarily by unmanned systems. The Second Nagorno-Karabakh war—fought between Armenia and Azerbaijan between September 24 and November 10, 2020—was the first war in history won primarily by unmanned systems. This 44-day war resulted in a decisive military victory for Azerbaijan. Armenia was outfought, outnumbered, and outspent and lost even though they controlled the high ground in a mountainous region that favored traditional defense. Azerbaijan’s alliance with Turkey, and close technological support from Israel, strategically isolated Armenia. In addition, Turkey’s posturing influenced the Russians not to intervene to support Armenia. That Azerbaijan attacked Armenia during the pandemic was an additional factor. The fact that Azerbaijan won the war is not extraordinary, considering the correlation of forces arrayed against Armenia. What is exceptional is that this was the first modern war primarily decided by unmanned weapons. In this war the Turkish-made BAYRAKTAR TB2 Unmanned Air Combat Vehicle (UCAV) and the Israeli-made HAROP Loitering Munition (LM) dominated the fighting and provided Azerbaijan with a war-winning advantage.

“We attacked and ate a number of people because we were hungry.” Centuries ago, a man stood accused of thirteen ghastly murders. Brazenly, he declared his innocence, blaming his acts on a curse that transformed him into a ravenous wolf. It was a case that would shatter the blissful ignorance of human civility and pave the way to understanding modern serial killers. Today, Morgan Stern awakens to a morning worth sleeping through. A stupid prank, a humiliating video, and the aftermath of the ensuing bender ought to be penance enough for whatever karmic debt he owed the universe. But when one of the pranksters turns up brutally mutilated in the Virginian forests, clearing his name will mean stepping into a nightmare world of vengeance, violence, and creatures long thought to be mere fantasy...and all before his first cup of coffee too.
