Editorial Reviews

Review

"With more than three hundred footnotes, the Taylors' work is extensively researched. Each chapter is organized by an in-depth historical account of a conflict and immediately followed by accounts of the veterans' homecomings. In addition to the enormous amount of facts, the authors provide a wonderful anthology of personal stories from veterans of the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, the Civil War, Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War and the current Global War on Terrorism. By weaving these personal stories throughout the book, Taylor skillfully connects the pieces of history together….[T]his book should be of major importance to legislators and policymakers who have a say in revamping and reestablishing veteran's benefits. More importantly, this book is educational to all citizens so they become more aware of the unbelievable sacrifices our servicemen and women have made and continue to make." - On Point

"Taylor records the problems American veterans have faced when they returned home from various wars….Homeward Bound relates many of the shared experiences and hopes of those who served their country and describes the difficulties they encountered moving from battleground to the home front….Veterans, those who share in their lives and readers who enjoy history will appreciate the insights of Homeward Bound." - ARMY Magazine

"The recent media and congressional furor concerning the deplorable conditions facing veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan occupations at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the less trumpeted difficulties many recent veterans are facing in receiving adequate care and readjusting to life back home likely came as no surprise to author Taylor, who describes similar situations throughout American history from the Revolutionary War to the present. With treatment of veteran experiences of the aftermaths of the Revolutionary War, the Mexican-American War, the War of 1812, the Civil War, foreign wars of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, World War I the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the first Gulf War included, he covers such issues as social readjustment and acceptance, job training and placement, medical care and disability compensation, education, retirement, burial. He also provides coverage of the often-differing experiences of women and minority veterans." - Reference & Research Book News

From the Author

The true lesson of the book is that war changes soldiers; men and women return home to discover combat experiences become a part of their life.
