Approximately 2.5 million women and men have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan within the carrier of the U.S. battle on Terror. Marian Eide and Michael Gibler have gathered and compiled own wrestle money owed from a few of these conflict veterans. In smooth battle no deployment meets the expectancies laid down through tales of Appomattox, Ypres, Iwo Jima, or Tet. caught in the back of a table or the wheel of a truck, lots of today’s veterans believe they haven’t even been to battle notwithstanding they might have listened to mortars within the evening or dodged improvised explosive units in the course of the day. while a drone is required to ensure a target’s dying or bullets are sprayed like grass seed, army offensives can lack the immediacy that includes direct contact.

After Combat bridges the distance among sensationalized media and fact by way of telling war’s unvarnished tales. partaking infantrymen, sailors, marines, and air strength group of workers (retired, on depart, or at first of army careers) describe wrestle within the methods they think it's going to be understood. during this choice of interviews, veterans converse anonymously with delight approximately their very own strengths and accomplishments, with gratitude for friendships and adventures, and likewise about shame, remorse, and grief, whereas braving controversy, false impression, and sanction.

within the bills of those veterans, Eide and Gibler search to provide what Vietnam veteran and author Tim O’Brien calls a “true battle story”—one with no seen objective or ethical imputation, and self reliant of civilian common sense, propaganda ambitions, or even peacetime convention.
