Abstract:

A reporter's firsthand, close-up-and-personal look at the impact of our recent wars on America's unlucky soldiers.

"Ann Jones shows the dead, wounded, mutilated, brain-damaged, drug-addicted, suicidal, homicidal casualties of our distant wars, taking us on a stunning journey from the devastating moment an American soldier is first wounded in rural Afghanistan to the return home. Beautifully written by an empathetic and critical reporter who knows the price of war."--Provided by publisher.
