University of Virginia School of Law students students recently acted and produced a radio drama for Professor John Setear’s “An American Half-Century” class

From the Law School’s Facebook page:

“The production, which strives to be historically accurate, describes what happened after Secretary of State Henry Kissinger sought to avoid a superpower showdown and to reach a ceasefire to end the 1973 Yom Kippur War between Israel and a coalition of Arab states led by Egypt and Syria.

Second-year law student Max Corey, who took the course in a previous semester, wrote the script in connection with a class project.

The drama, “DEFCON Rising: The Yom Kippur War Ceasefire,” can be heard here.
