Crisis and armed conflict, from Korea to the Persian Gulf
From bloody but undeclared wars to swift, information-driven conflicts, the very nature of warfare changed during the last century. America’s military changed, too, with women, elite special forces, and high-tech weaponry playing larger roles. Join Mike Wallace as he examines pivotal clashes in recent history, from Korea to Somalia. See on-the-spot dispatches from the front lines, as reported by legendary correspondents such as Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite, and Morley Safer. Hear expert analysis from journalists, military leaders, and historians--including David Halberstam, Robert S. McNamara, and Sen. John McCain--as well as personal testimonies from veterans who fought on the ground, over the sea, and in the air.
These 10 thought-provoking episodes show 20th-century conflicts as they happened--and unflinchingly explore the lessons learned in their aftermath.
Best known as a correspondent for the groundbreaking CBS newsmagazine 60 Minutes, journalist Mike Wallace has won over 20 Emmys®, three Peabodys, and many other awards in his distinguished career spanning more than five decades.
