Going to War

Premiered May 28, 2018

What is it really like to go to war? Filled with terror, pain and grief, it also brings exhilaration, and a profound sense of purpose. In Going to War, renowned authors Karl Marlantes and Sebastian Junger help us make sense of this paradox and get to the heart of what it’s like to be a soldier at war. Veterans of various conflicts reveal some universal truths of combat with unflinching candor.

Produced by Michael Epstein, GOING TO WAR is a production of Twin Cities PBS in association with Vulcan Productions, Inc. and PBS. Major funding is provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Additional support provided by The Weber Family and Mr. and Mrs. Frederick W. Smith.
