Washington Post journalist David Finkel followed an American infantry battalion in Iraq in his 2009 book "The Good Soldiers." In Thank You For Your Service Finkel offers a follow up to that work, this time exploring a subject less often considered: what happens when troops come home from military service. In so doing, Finkel has produced "a stunning, moving, subdued masterpiece of a book," writes Monitor book critic book Craig Fehrman. Although his subject is both grim and complex, Fehrman writes that Finkel "infuses his writing with the same thrill as a page-turner." You can read the Monitor's full review of "Thank You For Your Service" here.
