Filmmaker; Author, War and The Perfect Storm
The author who brought us The Perfect Storm, Junger explores the harsh realities of soldiers dealing with war and combat. For 15 months, Junger followed a single platoon through its tour of duty in Afghanistan’s dangerous Korengal Valley. Through the harrowing experiences of the young men he joined, Junger examines the physical and mental strength needed to fight, serve and survive on a daily basis. This experience also led to his documentary Restrepo.
Junger will also be speaking in Silicon Valley on May 23.
