Dehumanizing? That's how some people think of the military, and of war. But the truth is, life-threatening conflict and being pushed to our utmost can often bring out the very most human parts of us, those parts in which we can take the most pride.
Here are twelve authors' stories of the humanity of veterans and active-duty military-stories that display to us just how human we can be, no matter how stressful the situation is, and how honor and courage-ancient military traditions-live on.
"The authors are, without exception, experienced novelists and crafters of shorter fiction. Experience shows. It shows in the overall excellent quality of stories ranging from WWII-era to Afghanistan. They are by turns, bitter and surprising, tender and real. These stories... accurately recall and reflect military and home-front actions and attitudes." -Carl Brookins, author of DEVILS ISLAND
"World War II, Vietnam, Afghanistan, anywhere-all wars are hell, interrupted by moments of valor and selflessness, and all wars live on in the hearts and minds of those who fight them. This extraordinary collection of stories brings to vivid life the men and women who fight for their country, their triumphs and occasional failures, their scarring and their redemption. There are stories in this book I'll never forget, and no one who reads it will look at the news the same way again." -Tim Hallinan, author of the Poke Rafferty series
"Wolfmont Press has again gathered a group of talented authors to ply their trade on behalf of a worthy cause... something every reader should place high on their must read list." -Allan Ansorge, author of the Bay Harbor series
