War by Sebastian Junger Hachette

From the best-selling author of The Perfect Storm, comes a new book chronicling the intensity of war as experienced by one platoon based in Afghanistan. War is Sebastian Junger’s account of what soldiers feel in combat – the adrenaline-filled chaos of an ambush, the no-holds-barred risks soldiers take to protect their own, the mind-numbing anticipation of waiting for battle. Junger joins Larry in studio to talk about the lives of soldiers, violence and American defeat.

Guest:

Sebastian Junger, author of War (12 Press). Junger’s previous books include The Perfect Storm and A Death in Belmont. He is also a reporter for Vanity Fair.
