"[A]fter a decade and a half of war reporting, Hedges hung it up. He has stepped back to reflect on the carnage he witnessed. The result is a brilliant, thoughtful, timely and unsettling book whose greatest merit is that it will rattle jingoists, pacifists, moralists, nihilists, politicians and professional soldiers equally. War, Hedges finds, 'exposes the capacity for evil that lurks not far below the surface within all of us.' We are all culpable."Hedges, Chris is the author of 'War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning', published 2003 under ISBN 9781400034635 and ISBN 1400034639.
