Displaying a rare courage that transcends battlefield heroics, 11 soldiers and marines here share the truth about their wars. Award-winning journalist Kevin Sites asks the difficult questions of these combatants: What is it like to kill? To be under fire? How do you know what’s right? What can you never forget? Sites compiles the accounts of these soldiers, their families, and their friends and also shares the unsettling narrative of his own failures during war and the redemptive powers of storytelling in arresting a spiraling path of self-destruction.
