|Summary:|| The author's previous book The Good Soldiers, reckoned with the psychology of war. An account from the front lines of Baghdad, he shadowed the men of the 2-16 Infantry Battalion as they carried out the infamous surge, a grueling fifteen-month tour that changed all of them forever. Now he has followed many of those same men as they've returned home and struggled to reintegrate, both into their family lives and into American society at large. It is a profound look at life after war. He writes with tremendous compassion not just about the soldiers but about their wives and children. Where do soldiers belong after their homecoming? Is it possible, or even reasonable, to expect them to rejoin their communities as if nothing has happened? And in moments of hardship, who are soldiers expected to turn to if they feel alienated by the world they once lived in? These are the questions he faces as he revisits the brave but shaken men of the 2-16. More than a work of journalism, the book is an act of understanding. Shocking but always riveting, unflinching but deeply humane, it takes us inside the heads of those who must live the rest of their lives with the chilling realities of war. -- Provided by publisher.
