Sebastian Junger discusses his recent book, War, about his 15 months being embedded with a unit in Afghanistan.
Sebastian Junger, the author who brought us The Perfect Storm, explores the harsh realities of soldiers dealing with war and combat.

For 15 months, Junger followed a single platoon through its tour of duty in Afghanistan's dangerous Korengal Valley. Through the harrowing experiences of the young men he joined, Junger examines the physical and mental strength needed to fight, serve and survive on a daily basis. This experience also led to his documentary "Restrepo."
