It is Baghdad 2005, and Sergeant Joe Busch is holding it together for his men. He has lost many, felt painfully the wounds of combat that have felled good soldiers. During a brutal street fight, Joe is struck down by an enemy’s bullet and wakes up to discover that he is paralyzed. He also discovers that his girlfriend, Sara, is pregnant, leaving him overwhelmed by helplessness and despair. In Shadows of War, written with unparalleled compassion by Army veteran Jacob Lawrence Krapfl, readers find a poignant, brutally honest novel that deals with the horrors of war: the despair experienced by many soldiers during combat; the fears suffered long after their tour of duty is over; and the painful reminder that PTSD—Post Traumatic Stress Disorder—is no imaginary psychological diagnosis, but an invisible and often destructive condition that affects the lives of many soldiers, leaving them helpless to live normal, healthy lives and too often resulting in tragedy.
