520    "From a MacArthur Fellow and the author of The Good 
       Soldiers, a profound look at life after war. No journalist
       has reckoned with the psychology of war as intimately as 
       David Finkel. In The Good Soldiers, his bestselling 
       account from the front lines of Baghdad, Finkel shadowed 
       the men of the 2-16 Infantry Battalion as they carried out
       the infamous surge, a grueling fifteen-month tour that 
       changed all of them forever. Now Finkel has followed many 
       of those same men as they've returned home and struggled 
       to reintegrate--both into their family lives and into 
       American society at large. In the ironically named Thank 
       You for Your Service, Finkel writes with tremendous 
       compassion not just about the soldiers but about their 
       wives and children. Where do soldiers belong after their 
       homecoming? Is it possible, or even reasonable, to expect 
       them to rejoin their communities as if nothing has 
       happened? And in moments of hardship, who are soldiers 
       expected to turn to if they feel alienated by the world 
       they once lived in? These are the questions Finkel faces 
       as he revisits the brave but shaken men of the 2-16. More 
       than a work of journalism, Thank You for Your Service is 
       an act of understanding--shocking but always riveting, 
       unflinching but deeply humane, it takes us inside the 
       heads of those who must live the rest of their lives with 
       the chilling realities of war"--|cProvided by publisher.
