About the Show
What is it really like to go to war? For millennia, only warriors could answer that question. Now, Going to War takes us inside the experience of battle and reveals the soldier’s experiences as never before seen. Leading our explorations are Sebastian Junger (Restrepo) and Karl Marlantes (Matterhorn, What It is Like to Go to War). Both men bring first-hand experience, hard-won wisdom and an abiding commitment to telling the warrior’s story with insight and unflinching candour. Going to War illuminates the experiences of training, battle and coming home for soldiers, getting to the heart of what it’s like to be a soldier in times of war.
