C. J. Chivers - The Fighters: Americans in Combat in Afghanistan and Iraq

Upcoming Event
Monday, August 20, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Chivers, author of The Gun, first saw combat as a Marine Infantry Officer in the Persian Gulf War, and in the last twelve years has reported from the battlefronts of Afghanistan and Iraq. In his new book, which grew from a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times Magazine article, he focuses on six of the nearly 2.5 million Americans who have served in these conflicts. Through the experiences of an F-14 pilot, a Green Beret sergeant, a Navy corpsman, a helicopter pilot, an Army infantryman, and a Marine lieutenant, Chivers traces the larger histories of these wars as well as giving an intimate, visceral view of the daily realities of combat, from the troops’ courage, camaraderie and sense of purpose to their frustration and moral confusion.
