Summary
In this groundbreaking new book, David Wood examines the far more pervasive yet less understood experience of those we send to war: moral injury, the violation of our fundamental values of right and wrong that so often occurs in the impossible moral dilemmas of modern conflict. Impeccably researched and deeply personal, What Have We Done is a compassionate, finely drawn study of modern war and those caught up in it. It is a call to acknowledge our newest generation of veterans by listening intently to them and absorbing their stories; and, as new wars approach, to ponder the inevitable human costs of putting American boots on the ground
Summary
Featuring portraits of combat veterans and leading mental health researchers, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist presents a meticulously researched and deeply personal look at war and those who volunteer for it, and, too often, receive the scars of moral injury
