📒The War At Home ✍ Shawn J. Gourley
📝The War at Home Book Synopsis : When your soldier returns home to you, it should be a happy and joyful time. You are glad your spouse is safe and sound back home and can't wait to get your life going again. Everything should be great! But what if the homecoming is anything but great? What if suddenly you can't connect, or you feel worlds apart? What if your vet is no longer interested in going out or being around other people? Maybe your spouse isn't sleeping well, or worse, becoming violent while asleep. Your vet may not be reconnecting with the kids and may seem uninterested in any new additions to the family. What if your spouse gets angry at small things or even becomes violent? What do you do? Do you ignore it and keep thinking it will get better if you give it more time? In February 2003, Shawn Gourley's husband, Justin, returned home from his tour in the Middle East where his ship was deployed to assist Operation Enduring Freedom. Cracks were already showing in his personality, cracks that would widen dramatically into full-on fractures by the time he returned home in June 2004 from his third tour that marked the end of his military career. For the next 4 1/2 years their relationship was very difficult, and at times, downright terrifying for her and the children. It wasn't until January 2009 that Justin was able to get treatment. He was finally diagnosed with PTSD in August 2009. Those are the broad strokes of their story, but the details of how Shawn fought to save her family will leave you transfixed until the end.

📒The War At Home Volume Iv ✍ John Connor
📝The War at Home Volume IV Book Synopsis : The War at Home interprets the experience of the Australian people during the Great War in Australia itself, in the politics of war, its economic and social effects, and in the experience of war; what is conventionally called 'social history'. It seeks to show that the war affected many aspects of Australians' lives--and that people's experience of 1914-18 included more than just the war. It also addresses the impact of the war on Australia's culture and artistic responses to the war.This volume draws on the uneven but still substantial body of scholarship that has grown up in the decades since Ernest Scott's official history appeared in 1936, which in turn has largely been founded on an array of sources mainly made available since then. The Bibliographic Essay discusses the secondary literature on which it is based. It also reflects the experience of the years since then. The events of our past change how we understand more distant history. It is impossible now to think of the internment of German Australians without also reflecting on the experiences of those detained in immigration detention camps, to think of the 'battle of Broken Hill' without also thinking of the 'war on terror' pursued from 2001, or to look at Norman Lindsay's posters without recalling the insidious influence of propaganda in the century since.Before understanding the way the Great War affected Australians, we need to acknowledge the texture of life in 1914. Australia before the Great War was, as Michelle Hetherington writes in a survey of the last full year of peace, 'a world of glorious possibilities', in which as a social laboratory of progressive social, industrial and economic legislation it was 'eager to learn, to develop, to dream'. The war would damage that dream, arguably fatallyThe Centenary History of Australia and the Great War Series:Volume 1: Australia and the War in the Air - AvailableVolume 2: The War with the Ottoman Empire - AvailableVolume 3: The War with Germany - AvailableVolume 5: The Australian Imperial Force - April 2016

📒Blowback ✍ Chris Arsenault
📝Blowback Book Synopsis : Chronicling the horrific story of the Agent Orange experiments near Oromocto, New Brunswick, this shocking history reveals the tragic accounts of numerous families who lost loved ones due to military testing. Depicting the initial spraying of the deadly defoliant near Gagetown, this document portrays how the United States military, searching for a terrain similar to Vietnam, began conducting tests in this area. Although the Americans discontinued their trials in the late 1960s, this record uncovers more than an additional decade’s worth of continued use by Canadian forces, who discovered it was cheaper to clear brush and kill trees with a dangerous chemical than to hire workers to perform the task. As this astonishing study demonstrates, what they did not know at the time was that Agent Orange also killed people. Hundreds of locals suffered and died, and cancer and other diseases ran rampant among military personnel and civilians who worked on the base. This stunning recollection investigates the stories of those who didn’t survive as well as their relatives’ daunting struggle to obtain compensation for their suffering and loss, exposing countless years of government complicity.

Sultan went on to graduate from college summa cum laude with a degree in economics, and in July 2001, she returned to Kandahar, to explore her family roots and find herself. There she met her relatives and surveyed the conservative provincial town where she was born. on return visit to afganistan, she discovered the tragic death of her relatives at the hands of American troops and began to seek answers.
