The Untold War

Inside the Hearts, Minds, and Souls of Our Soldiers

Nancy Sherman (Author)


"Brilliant . . . a must read for veterans and those who seek to understand them."—Huffington Post

The Untold War draws on revealing interviews with servicemen and -women to offer keen psychological and philosophical insights into the experience of being a soldier. Bringing to light the ethical quandaries that soldiers face—torture, the thin line between fighters and civilians, and the anguish of killing even in a just war—Nancy Sherman opens our eyes to the fact that wars are fought internally as well as externally, enabling us to understand the emotional tolls that are so often overlooked.
