Editorial Reviews Review

Seasoned war correspondent Bob Drury has a history of uncovering the little-known details of war by spending time with soldiers and asking challenging questions. And perhaps no question has been more difficult than asking what it's like to live without legs, without testicles, and in some cases without a penis. Captain Tom Bertelsmann had a stoic response: "You either die from it or learn to live with it. You better learn to accept who you are, now, this different person." Bertelsmann lost both legs and both testicles in an IED blast. He is one of more than 200 who have suffered similar wounds in Afghanistan since 2009. Drury uncovers and explores an issue currently weighing on the mind of many a serving soldier--the prospect of losing his manhood in an IED blast. In this fast-paced article soldiers explain in detail how they got blown up, their immediate reactions, and how it's changed their lives. Drury includes the point of view of those who attend the wounded: the surgeons, the physical and psychological rehabilitators, and even a crack team in the Pentagon working on ballistic (bomb proof) underwear, cups, and cod pieces. An eye-opening read. --Paul Diamond --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
