Soldiers at War and at Home

Email a Friend

In The Good Soldiers, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Finkel gave an account from the front lines of Baghdad, embedded with the 2-16 Infantry Battalion during a grueling 15-month tour that changed them all forever. In his latest book, Thank You for Your Service, Finkel has again embedded with some of the men of the 2-16—this time at home. He creates a portrait of what life after war is like—not just for these soldiers, but for their wives, widows, children, and friends.
