  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2021 January #1
    As anyone with combat veterans in their social circle can tell you, there is usually a story for every occasion. Now every reader can access them. Patterson and retired First Sergeant Eversmann, who served in Somalia and Iraq, conducted open-ended interviews with dozens of marines, air force pilots, sailors, and soldiers to create this oral history collection, with the help of writer Chris Mooney, in which veterans speak frankly about their experiences. The authors did yeoman's work in recording and categorizing these accounts from so many service members with diverse points of view, including those who served in the infantry, tank divisions, and communications as well as medics and others. The book focuses primarily on the many campaigns that comprise the ongoing war on terror, and it will stand as an excellent primary source for readers and researchers interested in first-person tales told by military personnel. A brief biography is provided for each service member interviewed, and each speaks candidly about the complex realities of combat, pain, trauma, and survival. These are voices that are not heard often enough. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
