Reporter James Verini arrived in Iraq in the summer of 2016 and covered the jihadis’ last great stand, the Battle of Mosul, not knowing it would go on for nearly a year and become one of the most significant urban combat events since WWII. Brian van Reet, veteran and novelist, talks with Verini about the heart of the conflict, its unspeakable violence and improbable humanity.
