George Mason University Professor Christopher Hamner discusses the evolution of the American soldier.
Hamner has just published his first book, “Enduring Battle,” which examines the changing experience of ground combat from the War for Independence to the Civil War to the Second World War, focusing on ways that individual soldiers’ motivations to withstand the trauma of combat evolved as technological advances recast the battlefield.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing at 6:30 p.m. Lecture begins at 7 p.m.
This program was postponed in May.
Presented in partnership with the Arlington Committee on the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War.
