Author Jim Frederick Discusses BLACK HEARTS (2/2)

Time magazine’s Jim Frederick discusses his latest book “Black Hearts: One Platoon’s Descent into Madness in Iraq’s Triangle of Death,” the story of a small group of soldiers from the 101st airborne divisions fabled 502nd Infantry Regiment—a unit known as the Black Heart Brigade.
