Summary:
"In these accounts, veterans take readers through this century's battle fields and back home, revealing their inner scars and the ongoing suffering shared by their families and many others whose lives they touch." "Many veterans feel betrayed and silenced by the country that demanded the ultimate sacrifice of its young men and women. Here, they speak from our nations homes, workplaces, hospitals, prisons, and homeless shelters, determined to spare the next generation from the scourges of war. For some, personal resistance to militarism has spelled a remarkable transformation of their lives, and filled them with vibrant hope and purpose." "Yet veterans also seek healing. A starting place, they say, is to let veterans speak - to give them space to honestly confront the past. This book does that. Survivors of war allow us to enter into their quest for healing, and so are healed."--BOOK JACKET.
