Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Nathaniel Fick for a discussion of his best selling book 'One Bullet Away: The Making of a Marine Officer." Drawing on his wartime experiences in Afghanistan and Iraq, Fick reflects on the nature of war and the role of the marines in post 911 conflicts. He focuses on military training and leadership with special attention to reconciling tactical and strategic imperatives, ethical issues in counterinsurgency missions, and deployment of military force as a complement to the full utilization of all aspects of American power.
