Abstract:

An unflinching portrayal of the toll war exacts on the men and women fighting it. The author served three tours of duty in the Middle East, two of them as the commander of an Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit in Iraq. His book immerses the reader in two harrowing and simultaneous realities: the terror, excitement and camaraderie of combat, and the lonely battle against the enemy within, the haunting memories that will not fade, the survival instincts that will not switch off. After enduring what he has endured, can there ever again be such a thing as "normal"?
