About this item

A decade has passed since boots first hit the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet the war has not ended -- only changed. Twenty-five diverse veteran voices reflect the changing face of combat and reflect the haunting realities and truths only fiction can reveal.These masterfully crafted stories from writers who have served reflect the entire breadth of human emotion -- loss, anger, joy, love, fear, and courage -- and the evolving nature of what has become America's "Forever War."From debut writers to experienced contributors whose work has been featured in the New York Times, the Atlantic, and the New Yorker, this exceptional collection promises to be the definitive fictional look at the aftereffects of the Iraq and Afghan Wars, and will resonate with the reader long after the final page.
