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.

Stanley McChrystal, a graduate of West Point, retired from the U.S. Army in July 2010 as a four-star general. Along with commanding U.S. forces in Afghanistan, General McChrystal also served as commander of the Joint Special Operations Command and as director of the Joint Staff. He is the co-founder of McChrystal Group, a consulting firm, and, since August 2010, has been a senior fellow at Yale University’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs. close
