NPR's Melissa Block talks with Pulitzer-prize winning author Rick Atkinson about his latest book, In the Company of Soldiers, in which he chronicles the 101st Airborne Division's time in Iraq last year. Atkinson, a reporter for The Washington Post, was embedded with the division and had complete access to the division's commander Maj. Gen. David Petraeus.
