War is deception, as the Chinese general Sun Tzu said—and it’s left to investigative journalists to strip away the deceit. Who’s really commanding the battle, and what do they get out of it? Who’s funding and arming them? What back-door dealings are underway while the country’s in turmoil? Amid the violence and chaos, it takes a cool head and strong gut to make sense of it all, and unpick the details that are truly history-making.

We have three great journalists who have years of experience in doing just that, on diverse warfronts, and will explain on how to nail down what’s truly important: Kunda Dixit, whose trilogy on the Nepal civil war is a landmark work; Malini Subramaniam, just honored with CPJ's International Press Freedom Award for her gutsy work on India's Maoist conflict; and veteran Afghan correspondent Mirwais Jalalzai.
