The Three Battles of Wanat

Including pieces from the AtlanticVanity Fair, the New Yorker, and the Philadelphia Inquirer, this collection is Bowden at his best. The titular article, "The Three Battles of Wanat," tells the story of one of the bloodiest days in the War in Afghanistan and the extraordinary years-long fallout it generated within the United States military. In "The Killing Machines," Bowden examines the strategic, legal, and moral issues surrounding armed drones. And in a brilliant piece on Kim Jong-un, "The Bright Sun of Juche," he recalibrates our understanding of the world's youngest and most baffling dictator. Also included are profiles of newspaper scion Arthur Sulzberger; renowned defense attorney and anti-death-penalty activist Judy Clarke; and David Simon, the creator of "The Wire."
