About this title

Synopsis:

Includes a CD with 48 color photographs by photographer Sascha Pflaeging

Women are officially barred from combat in the American armed services, yet in today's wars, where there are no front lines, the ban on combat is virtually meaningless. More than in any previous conflict in our history, American women are engaging with the enemy, suffering injuries, and even sacrificing their lives in the line of duty.

When Janey Comes Marching Home juxtaposes forty-eight photographs by Sascha Pflaeging with oral histories collected by Laura Browder to provide a dramatic portrait of women at war. Women from all five branches of the military share their stories here -- stories that are by turns moving, comic, thought-provoking, and profound. Seeing their faces in stunning color photographic portraits and reading what they have to say about loss, comradeship, conflict, and hard choices will change the ways we think about women and war.

Serving in a combat zone is an all-encompassing experience that is transformative, life-defining, and difficult to leave behind. By coming face-to-face with women veterans, we who are outside that world can begin to get a sense of how the long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have impacted their lives and how their stories may ripple out and influence the experiences of all American women.

Book Description:

"Respectful but unflinching, these arresting images and stories of women veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan have the power to stop us in our tracks and transform how we think about the American way of war. As fellow citizens like these return for third, fourth, and fifth tours of duty, this important documentary can help us muster the empathy to make their lives a part of our daily consciousness."--Christian G. Appy, author of Patriots: The Vietnam War Remembered from All Sides
