In WAR Sebastian Junger turns his brilliant and empathetic eye to the reality of combat: the fear, the honor, and the trust among men in an extreme situation whose survival depends on their absolute commitment to one another. His on-the-ground account follows a single platoon through a fifteen-month tour of duty in the most dangerous outpost in Afghanistan's Korengal Valley. Through the experiences of these young men at war, he shows what it means to fight, to serve, and to face down mortal danger on a daily basis. His insights are breathtaking.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Absorbing and original! Junger has found a novel and interesting lens through which to view the conflict in Afghanistan, and he captures many things a lesser writer might miss.” New York Times
“It takes a very good book to carry off a title as portentous as WAR, and Sebastian Junger has written one! An outstanding war report: a precise and gripping account of some of the fiercest battles involving American soldiers in recent times.” Economist
“Junger mixes visceral combat scenes-raptly aware of his own fear and exhaustion-with quieter reportage and insightful discussions of the physiology, social psychology, and even genetics of soldiering. The result is an unforgettable portrait of men under fire.” Publishers Weekly
“Junger was embedded with a frontline unit and followed them over their eighteenth-month deployment. Because the work includes personal impressions as well as traditional reporting, the author chose to record the work himself. He’s a capable narrator, and his gritty and, at times, wearied tone exactly suits the book.” AudioFile
“The author dives into the most perilous form of immersion journalism, attempting to create an unflinching account of frontline combat…Junger blends popular science, psychology and history with a breathlessly paced narrative.” Kirkus Reviews
