The Best of Times, the Worst of Times: War and Memory by Dheera Sujan
War brings horror, brutality, and grief - but inevitably there is also intense comradeship. Many veterans talk about the wars they participated in even 50 years ago as the shaping event of their lives. Across the U.S. and all over Europe, memorials of war are everywhere. In this program, Professor Jay Winter from Yale University and 3 war veterans talk of how war has shaped individual and national identity and how different wars are remembered in the collective memory.
