A Moyar Report

My podcast today is with Mark Moyar, a professor at the U.S. Marine Corps University and author of the just-published book, A Question of Command: Counterinsurgency from the Civil War to Iraq. We talk about how to win in Afghanistan, why the ballyhooed “hearts and minds” strategy doesn’t always work, and what role counterinsurgency played in the days of Grant and Lee.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
