Here, freelance writer Aaron Glantz hones in on the momentous impact of the Iraq war on injured veterans as they return home.

The War Comes Home is structured around the different experiences of US veterans of the Iraq war. Sections of the book are dedicated to the difficulties of reintegrating to civilian life after coming home, living with disability, unemployment, dealing with the military bureaucracy, suicide, and homelessness - as well as more upbeat sections about families, communities and fellow veterans pulling together to help each other.

Each section is told primarily through personal stories of Iraq war veterans and their families, backed-up by statistics. Some veterans appear as regular characters throughout the book, some only appear for a short discussion. Such a structure shows both the scope and the humanity of the issues at stake. In this way, The War Comes Home is conversational, readable, and informative.
