Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter and former Marine infantry officer C. J. Chivers has been covering the wars in Afghanistan or Iraq since their beginnings, back to being on scene minutes after the first passenger jet struck the World Trade Center in 2001. With The Fighters: Americans in Combat in Afghanistan and Iraq, Chivers returns to his subjects to follow the long human arc of the two wars by tracing the lives of six American service members over seventeen years. The result is an unvarnished account of modern combat, and its legacies and effects.
Attend a reading of the new book on September 11, 7-8:30pm. The event will be moderated by Phil Klay, author of Redeployment.
