Need To Know | Drawn to War | PBS

Duration: 07:54
Program: Need to Know #104
Broadcast Date: May. 28, 2010

Steve Mumford spent the first six years of the Iraq War embedded with US troops as a "combat artist." Although Mumford says he set out to draw the horror of war, and did on occasion encounter scenes of conflict, the overall impression a viewer gets from Mumford's work is of the ordinariness of life in a war zone.
