Peter van Uhm:
Why I chose a gun
Peter van Uhm is the Netherlands’ chief of defense, but that does not mean he is pro-war. In this talk, he explains how his career is one shaped by a love of peace, not a desire for bloodshed — and why we need armies if we want peace.
This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxAmsterdam, an independent event. TED editors featured it among our selections on the home page.
