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.


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.
