About this title

Synopsis:

"Operation Homecoming" is the result of a major initiative launched by the National Endowment for the Arts to bring distinguished writers to military bases to inspire U.S. soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen, and their families to record their wartime experiences. Encouraged by such authors as Tom Clancy, Tobias Wolff, and Marilyn Nelson, American military personnel and their loved ones wrote candidly about what they saw, heard, and felt while in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as on the home front. These unflinching eyewitness accounts, private journals, short stories, and letters offer an intensely revealing look into extraordinary lives and are an unforgettable contribution to wartime literature.
"One of the chanted mantras of our time is, 'But I support the troops.' Terrific. Now read "Operation Homecoming" to find out who they are, what they think, feel, want, have learned, won and lost in Iraq and Afghanistan."-Daniel Henninger, "Wall Street Journal"
" "
"This anthology is the honest voice of war. . . . In the end, they are all one voice, a voice we must hear, and must not forget."-Jeff Shaara
" "
"These voices are stirring, chilling, and unforgettable."-Bobbie Ann Mason
"[Captures] what journalists cannot, no matter how close they get-firsthand accounts from the warriors and the families they leave behind."-"Chicago" "Tribune"
