Who I am ...

Following a career of fifteen years working as an IT consultant and project manager for major clients in industry and banking, I moved into conflict studying as Defense & Security Analyst, Consultant from 2012. My main current work covers Libya, Iraq, Yemen as well as other Middle-East and North Africa countries for which I provide risk and threat analysis and assessments, situation assessments and maps, orders of battle thanks to my first hands sources within the armies and militants groups of these countries. My recent researches and analysis about the violation of the arms embargo and foreign countries involvement in the Libyan civil war was quoted and confirmed by latest report of United Nations Security Council Experts for Libya.

I have published almost a hundred analysis and articles for English and French professional défense media, a third of them on the situation in Libya. My work is quoted by United Nation Security Council, UK Ministry of Defence, Czech Republic Parliament, Think Tanks (ECFR, ISPI, Atlantic Council, Oakland Institute).

Furthermore, I am regularly asked by journalists for my input on the current situation in Libya, Egypt, Syria (Time, Le Monde, RFI, Libération, Middle East Eye, Raï). Moreover, I am also co-author of the series of three books ‘Libyan Air Wars’, Helion Publishing in the African@war series, and author of the book ‘Iraqi Air Power reborn’, Harpia Publishing.

  1. Cher M. Delalande,

    je viens de lire 'Libyan Air Wars part 1' et tiens à vous remercier et féliciter pour la qualité de cet ouvrage.

    J'ai relevé une contradiction dans le livre : il est écrit page 22 que le squadron 1002 (Mirage 5) est basé à El Adem / GANAB alors que l'ordre de bataille (table 1) indique que cette unité se trouve à UIN. J'imagine que cette contradiction n'est qu'apparente et s'explique par des éléments que j'ignore. Auriez-vous l'amabilité de me les préciser ?

    Je cherche par ailleurs des renseignements sur la marine libyenne de cette époque. Savez-vous quand la base de sous-marins de Ras al Hilal est devenue opérationnelle ?

    Je vous remercie par avance pour votre aide, et vous prie d'agréer l'expression de mes sentiments les meilleurs.
