For years, the war in Afghanistan has been fought almost exclusively by US Special Forces. Author Jessica Donati joins AUSA’s Joe Craig to discuss her book, Eagle Down: The Last Special Forces Fighting the Forever War, which delves into the lives of the Green Berets and other operators on the frontlines against the Taliban and the Islamic State group. Donati covers foreign affairs and national security for The Wall Street Journal in Washington. She joined WSJ as the bureau chief in Afghanistan, and previously worked for Reuters in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. She was part of the team that reported on the war in Libya, working on a series chosen as a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting in 2012.
