What Did You See at the War, Jimmy?

March 15th, 2006 by Larry Smith

SMITH “Back Home from IRAQ” columnist Michael Slenske takes his time when he interviews soldiers about their time on the battlefield. He listens, he lets his subjects talk, and we print nearly every word. The results: some of the best pieces on what the folks on the frontlines saw at the war, and how their experiences have changed their lives.
In his latest column, Slenske interviews Jimmy Massey whose book Kill, Kill, Kill has caused a big stir and started a new debate about just what constitutes “the fog of war.”

Slenske also interviews soldier turned playwright Sean Huze in the March/April issue of Mother Jones (note to MOJO, which swiped this piece from SMITH — you owe us one). Check out the Theater of War here.
