NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEWNOTABLE BOOK OF THE YEAR
No columnist has figured with the brain research of war as personally as David Finkel. In The Good Soldiers, his smash hit account from the cutting edges of Baghdad, Finkel implanted with the men of the 2-16 Infantry Battalion as they did the notorious “surge,” a tiresome fifteen-month visit that transformed them all eternity.
In Thank You for Your Service, Finkel takes after a significant number of those same men as they return home and battle to reintegrate―both into their family lives and into American culture on the loose. He is with them in their most cozy, excruciating, and cheerful minutes as they attempt to recoup, and in doing as such, he makes a permanent, basic representation of what life after war is like―not only for these troopers, yet for their spouses, dowagers, youngsters, and companions, and for the experts who are really attempting, and to an awesome degree fizzling, to fix the harm that has been finished. Much obliged to You for Your Service is a demonstration of comprehension, and it offers a more total picture than we have ever had of two fundamental inquiries: When we ask young fellows and ladies to go to war, what are we asking of them? Furthermore, when they return, what are we expressing gratitude toward them for?
