Story in the Public Square

Tara Copp

Season 1, Episode 8 of 17

Whether it's a film like "Saving Private Ryan," or a memoir like A Helmet for My Pillow, the temptation to romanticize war-and the Second World War, in particular-is part of American life. Tara Copp made sense of her own experience in the Iraq war, by understanding her grandfather's service more than 70 years ago.
