Mr. Polk’s War

Event Category:

December 13, 2018 @ 12:00 am

Despite advances in communication technology, most Americans viewed war through a romantic lens, which bore little resemblance to the reality of the soldier experience. Greg Hospodor addresses the gulf between those two perceptions and its later implications.
