- It is no coincidence that gave the book the "Hybrid War" title. I explain the concept of hybridity, present the opinions of various experts, and present real stories of participants in the war. The relations squeeze tears. I bring this concept closer to the readers - a hybrid war is a "wash and go". A war in which, on the one hand, the most modern technologies, drones, satellite intelligence, modern military means, and on the other hand, conventional means were used, characteristic of World War I, e.g. Molotov bottles . What happened in the years 2014-2017 in the East is a typical hybrid war - explained Major General Professor Doctor Hab. Bogusław Pacek.
