Gen. David Petraeus is the one who rose to fame, but military journalist Fred Kaplan argues that Petraeus was a leader of a group of “soldier-scholars” who endeavored to reform the U.S. military. Kaplan, a columnist for Slate, has written about this in The Insurgents: David Petraeus and the Plot to Change the American Way of War.
Kaplan will discuss his book at 7 p.m. Thursday at the main branch of the main branch of the Louisville Free Public Library. It’s free, but tickets are required.
He spoke Thursday afternoon with WFPL’s Jonathan Bastian.
