Jon Krakauer, author of Where Men Win Glory will appear on NBC’s Meet the Press this Sunday, 11/1 with a panel of guests discussing Afghanistan. Check your local listings for timings.
“On one level, Jon Krakauer’s Where Men Win Glory represents a detailed look at the tragic tale of Pat Tillman, the football star who quit the NFL to enlist in the Army and was killed by friendly fire in Afghanistan. But Krakauer’s book is also an exhaustive examination of America’s political and military involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq. Krakauer documents an unsettling history of miscalculation and mismanagement, of tactical blunders, deliberate deceit, and stunning incompetence at the highest levels of leadership…It all makes for painful, infuriating, and required reading.” —Boston Globe
