All Booked Up Book Discussion Group: Thank You for Your Service by David Finkel

Saturday, November 4, 2017

To write The Good Soldiers, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Finkel went to the front lines of Baghdad and embedded with the men of the 2-16 Infantry Battalion during the infamous "surge," a grueling 15-month tour that changed them all forever. In Thank You for Your Service, he has embedded with some of the men of the 2-16, but this time he has done it at home after their deployments have ended. He is with them as they try to recover, and in doing so, he creates an indelible, essential portrait of what life after war is like, not just for these soldiers, but for their wives, widows, children, and friends, and for the professionals who are truly trying, and to a great degree failing, to undo the damage that has been done. When we ask young men and women to go to war, what are we asking of them? And when they return, what are we thanking them for? Registration not required.
