This week we celebrate Veterans Day, with stories from the front lines. It’s not only those who do the fighting that put their selves in danger. Tatjana Soli takes us back to the fall of Saigon, seen through the eyes of a female photojournalist in her new novel, The Lotus Eaters. Next, Maggie Linton talks with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist David Finkle about his new book, The Good Soldiers, which follows a battalion of through Iraq.
And on a different note, from Audible Inc’s Fast Company Magazine, we’ll hear the story of how Starbucks reinvented the coffee cup. But first, Maggie has the top-ten military themed downloads from Audible.com. [Broadcast Date: November 9, 2010]
