Brian Williams interviews Sebastian Junger.
In his breakout bestseller, The Perfect Storm, Sebastian Junger created "a wild ride that brilliantly captures the awesome power of the raging sea and the often futile attempts of humans to withstand it". Now, he turns his brilliant and empathetic eye to the reality of combat--the fear, the honor and the trust among men in an extreme situation whose survival depends on their absolute commitment to one another. His on-the-ground account follows a single platoon through a 15 month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley.
A signing of Sebastian Junger's War will follow the event.
