Having depicted life on the front lines in Baghdad in his first book, Finkel follows the struggle of the same soldiers' return to civilian life. He exposes the hidden costs of war: the reality of living with post-traumatic stress disorder, the physical wounds and financial struggles of military personnel, and the spiraling suicide rate amongst veterans. Soldiers are plagued by nightmares, memory loss, violent impulses, and guilt over their dead comrades. Spouses and children are bewildered by the return of their loved ones, whose personalities have changed beyond all recognition. Finkel humanizes the aftermath of military life and makes a strong case for increased investment in veteran mental healthcare.
