General Stanley McChrystal talked about his memoir, My Share of the Task, with author and journalist Mark Bowden. In the book, the former commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan recounted the major turning points in his 34-year military career, which ended in 2010. He responded to questions from the library at the Free Library of Philadelphia.
