Description
"Unsparing, scathingly direct, and gut-wrenching . . . the war Washington doesn't want you to see" (Andrew J. Bacevich, New York Times -bestselling author of Washington Rules ) This "uncompromisingly visceral" account ( Mother Jones ) of what combat does to American soldiers comes from a veteran journalist who was embedded with troops in Afghanistan and reveals the harrowing journeys of the wounded, from the battlefield to back home. Along the way, the author of the acclaimed Kabul in Winter shows us the dead, wounded, mutilated, brain-damaged, drug-addicted, suicidal, and homicidal casualties of our distant wars, exploring the devastating toll such conflicts have taken on us as a nation. "An indispensable book about America's current wars and the multiple ways they continue to wound not only the soldiers but their families and indeed the country itself. Jones writes with passion and clarity about the tragedies other reporters avoid and evade." --Marilyn Young, editor of Iraq and the Lessons of Vietnam
