'The Good Soldier'

Stories from an embedded Iraq war correspondent

Washington Post correspondent David Finkel tells the story of 2-16 infantry, a battalion sent to Baghdad as part of the American “surge” strategy from 2007 to 2008. He follows their 15-month deployment in The Good Solider. The book gives gritty accounts of nerve-wracking patrols, brushes with death and a firsthand look at the fears and hopes of American soldiers. Listen as Finkel shares his experiences with Prime Time Radio host Mike Cuthbert.
