Bestselling author (and Newporter) Bing West, a combat Marine and assistant secretary of defense under President Reagan, has written a dozen books about our recent wars. His book with Defense Secretary General Jim Mattis was the #1 NYT bestseller last year. His new book is The Last Platoon: A Novel of the Afghanistan War. Like The Caine Mutiny, it captures the drama of leadership under mounting stress. The reviews on Amazon are remarkable. Bing will discuss the novel as a metaphor for an ill-conceived war.
