Sebastian Junger is the New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Storm and A Death in Belmont. He is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair, and has been awarded a National Magazine Award and an SAIS Novartis Prize for journalism. Junger reads from and discusses his new book War, in which 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.

($26.99) Twelve ISBN #978-0-446-55624-8. You can visit Sebastian Junger’s official web site as well.
