A contributing editor to Vanity Fair, Sebastian Junger has won both the SAIS Novartis Prize for journalism and a National Magazine Award. His first book, The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea, was a surprise bestseller and became a hit feature film, starring George Clooney. In War, Junger explores closely the physical, social, and psychological impacts of war by recounting time spent with a U.S. Army platoon engaged in Afghanistan. CBC (Canada) news anchor Peter Mansbridge calls War, "frontline, raw, combat reporting the quality of which you don't often read, because quite frankly, most war reporters never see it."
