Andrew Bacevich's Breach Of Trust


In a new book, Bacevich claims that Americans have failed their soldiers and their country, by entering conflicts he calls “unwinnable”.   A U.S. Army veteran, Bacevich also examines the disconnect between those who fight the wars and the rest of the country.  He says national defense must return to idea of “We the People”.


Andrew Bacevich: professor of history and international relations at Boston University, and retired U.S. Army officer of twenty-three years. He has written several books, including Breach of Trust, Washington Rules, and The Limits of Power.

*Andrew Bacevich will be speaking about his book at The Music Hall on Tuesday, October  15 at 5:30 PM, presented by the World Affairs Council of NH. Tickets are available here.
