Embedded author answered question on what happened to military veterans after they do their time in "the Surge" & Afghanistan. Post civilian life could be replicated on any country after any war. Gloomy & depressing despite the just the facts style , but make readers think. There were similar hints from Vietnam & WWII vets between the lines.
Book sure make people think second thoughts of joining the military & the potential price to pay.

"Compelling" covers this book. It's hard to read, and very credible. And we have the example of Romeo Dallaire living through his own haunted memories. Being a soldier is often terrible, and that often means terrible for life.

A compelling book which makes you wonder if our involvement in the Middle East is worth the devastation it has caused to many soldiers' lives.

A follow up to The Good Soldiers which follows some of the veterans after their return to the U.S. Their stories are heart-rending. Should be required reading by anyone serving in or running for Congress.
