The Draft | Full Episode

Episode 3 | 54m 50s

Race, class, culture — the draft in the 1960s and 1970s was a lightning rod that lit up every schism in American society. But ending the draft has produced unintended consequences, creating a citizenry completely disconnected from the soldiers who bear the entire burden of endless wars. The Draft tells the story of how a single, controversial issue continues to define a nation.
