Battles After War

Hour 1:           Over the last decade or so of American war-fighting, embedded journalists like David Finkel (and a few unembedded) have taken us along with U.S. soldiers like never before. But who’s along for the ride and reporting on soldiers’ lives once the war is over?We’ll spend this hour with Finkel, a Pulitzer Prize and MacArthur Foundation “genius” grant winning editor and writer for The Washington Post. His new book is Thank You for Your Service (Sarah Crichton Books, 2013).
