Letters to Washington

Letters to Washington – June 2, 2010

Sebastian Junger covered an Army Platoon in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley, where fierce fighting occurs daily, for 15 months.  We’ll be in conversation today about his new book
chronicling his time with the Platoon.  It’s called War.  Then we look back at the fascinating history of prohibition and the 18 th amendment with Daniel Okrent…he is the author of the book Last Call.
