Format: Paperback
Aaron Glantz, and Iraq Veterans Against the War, have written an extremely important historical document of the Winter Soldier hearings. Here are a few of my comments from a review I did of the book for Inter Press Service (IPS):

Aside from the Iraqi people, nobody knows what the U.S. military is doing in Iraq better than the soldiers themselves. A new book gives readers vivid and detailed accounts of the devastation the U.S. occupation has brought to Iraq, in the soldiers' own words.

"Winter Soldier Iraq and Afghanistan: Eyewitness Accounts of the Occupation," published by Haymarket Books Tuesday, is a gut-wrenching, historic chronicle of what the U.S. military has done to Iraq, as well as its own soldiers.

Four days of searing testimony, witnessed by this writer, is consolidated into the book, which makes for a difficult read. One page after another is filled with devastating stories from the soldiers about what is being done in Iraq.

Everything from the taking of "trophy" photos of the dead, to torture and slaughtering of civilians is included.

"We're trying to build a historical record of what continues to happen in this war and what the war is really about," Glantz told IPS.

Glantz admits that it would be difficult for the average U.S. citizen to read the book, and believes it is important to keep in mind while doing so what it took for the veterans to give this historic testimony.

"They could have been heroes, but what they are doing here is even more heroic -- which is telling the truth," Glantz told IPS. "They didn't have to come forward. They chose to come forward."

Format: Paperback
The Americans have committed many war crimes in Afghanistan. They say that since the Taliban does lots of bad things, we can too. No civilized person, or army for that matter, should stoop to the level of the Taliban. I thought American soldiers were supposed to be professionals, but I guess I was wrong. This war is immoral and many of the Americans fighting it have done unspeakable things to Afghan civilians. I know because I was there for two tours. This book is highly recommended,

Format: Paperback
In their own words, plainly and without anger or exaggeration, veterans decribe what they lived through, and how it changed them. The positive message I derive from this book is that everyday people can reaffirm their ethical orientation and human decency despite being subjected to an appalling process of dehumanization by the armed forces.

This book is essential reading.

Format: Paperback
Any one interested in what is really going on in Iraq and Afghanistan should read this book. It contains authentic testimony of boots on the ground, that is, US Forces and their continuing occupation. SHOCKING EVIDENCE that torture and inconsideration for human life is now government policy, and not just an isolated incident. A must read. *****

This is essential reading for every American. Whether you support the activity in Iraq and Afghanistan or not, you should know what the network news never tells you.
If you go to the IAVW website, you can watch the video testimonies of what is in this book.
If you say you want to show your support for the men and women serving our country, buying, reading and sharing this book is one way to do it.
