National Geographic: American War Generals

Director, Producer, Executive Producer, Writer

This two hour special features eleven of American's leading war generals, including Stanley McChrystal, David Petraeus, Colin Powell and George Casey describing in gripping first person accounts how they spent their careers training to fight a conventional enemy such as the Soviet Union, with tanks, clear front lines and an enemy in uniform, but then found themselves instead bogged down fighting guerrilla wars in Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11 -- the very type of war the Army hoped it would never again fight after Vietnam.
