Andrew Bacevich returns to the program to discuss a book that was intended to be a conventional narrative history of U.S. civil-military relations since World War II. Instead, he was steered onto a different course by his conviction that our military system is broken and no amount of patriotic sentimentality can disguise it. Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country is Bacevich’s seventh book. For twenty-three years Bacevich served as an officer in the U.S. Army and his son was killed by an IED while serving in Iraq in 2007. Bacevich is now a professor of history and international relations at Boston University. [Broadcast Date: September 11, 2013]
