An Oral History by Elise Forbes Tripp
"Haunted and haunting, the voices of Elise Tripp's collection of interviews with the military who have served in recent and not so recent battles reminds us anew how easily wars begin and how difficult it is for them to end. American Veterans on War is not only readable but honorable in a variety of ways including as journalism, as history, and as an act of public service."
