Synopsis: War magnifies human emotions and passions: anger becomes rage, guilt becomes desperation, and resentment becomes hatred. In The Grappling Hook and Other Stories from the War in Iraq, U. S. Army veteran William F.X. Maughan writes of these emotions from the perspective of someone who has been there. With ten poignant tales rich with humor, irony, disdain for hypocrisy, and admiration for leadership, Maughan tells the inside story of the conflict lurking beneath the war’s surface: the human dramas of the soldiers fighting it. From group efforts to neutralize a roadside bomb to the harassment of a female soldier, from mental illness to middle-aged recruits, Maughan illuminates a hidden world of tragedy, anxiety, and everyday heroism.  

About the Author: William F.X. Maughan served in the Marines from 1978 to 1982. After 9/11, he enlisted in the Army National Guard and served as a Staff Sergeant in Iraq in 2005 and 2006. Since his return home, he has been teaching theology at Pius X High School in Bangor, Pennsylvania.
