The War Comes Home: Washington’s Battle Against America’s Veterans

Aaron Glantz, unembeded journalist, broadcaster from Winter Soldier: Iraq and Afghanistan has just come out with his new book.

The War Comes Home: Washington’s Battle against America’s Veterans is the first book to systematically document the U.S. government’s neglect of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Aaron Glantz, who reported extensively from Iraq during the first three years of this war and has been reporting on the plight of veterans ever since, levels a devastating indictment against the Bush administration for its bald neglect of soldiers and its disingenuous reneging on their benefits. The book also supplies the reader with extensive, easy-to-use resource information for those who need help now, not when policy has changed.
