American soldiers serve willingly. They risk their lives so the rest of us can be safe. The one small thing they ask is that they not be sent into harm’s way unless it is absolutely necessary. But after being lied to about weapons of mass destruction and about the connection between al Qaeda and Iraq; after being forced by stop-loss orders to extend their deployment; after being undertrained, underequipped, and overworked long after George Bush declared “Mission Accomplished,” these soldiers have something to say.

From his famous 2003 Oscar acceptance speech to his record-breaking documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore has been an outspoken critic of the Bush administration and the war in Iraq. But in this audiobook, Moore gives the spotlight to the real heroes of protest: the men and women who have fought in Iraq and want the American public to know how they feel about their mission and their Commander in Chief. Moore also fields letters from veterans of other wars and mothers, wives, and siblings of our soldiers in the field who also express their anger and frustration, their tears and pain, and their hopes and prayers.

Impassioned, accessible, and moving, these are letters that reveal the true hearts and minds of the men, women, and families on the front line.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This collection packs the emotional punch of a SCUD missile and will open readers’ eyes to the fact that it’s not just the country that’s divided; the soldiers fighting overseas are, too.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Multiple male and female readers bespeak the writers’ anger, sorrow, and profanity…A change of narrator every minute or so delivers pleasant variety, and the care taken to match the voice with each letter’s sender deserves praise.”

Listener Opinions

    " This entire book is letters to Michael Moore from soldiers currently serving, veterans, and soldiers' families. Amazing and very sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jes | 2/9/2014

    " Was an alright and quick read, read it less than 5 hours. I wish there had been some letters that disagreed with Mike, but I didn't really expect any. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Smiltneck | 1/18/2014

    " I love the concept of this book. I found it at the dollar store, but it would have been worth the full price, definitely. It is full of letters from soldiers stationed in Iraq who write to Michael Moore to tell him that they appreciate his efforts on their behalf. Not all of them completely agree with him, and it is cool to see that he printed some of those letters, too. A great perspective on our current war, at least for someone who does not totally (or at all, really) support this war. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/8/2014

    " Powerful stuff. Cried more than a few times. Such a shame. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 1/1/2014

    " I read this book a few years ago when it was first published. It's an interesting compendium of letters received by Michael Moore. Most letters comment, at least in part, on his film Fahrenheit 9/11. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Lau Azure Door | 12/18/2013

    " Touching letters from those who have been betrayed and have to fight and that don't want to die and kill anymore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin Miller | 12/11/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Randy Ball | 2/24/2013

    " I did not vote for Bush (nor would I vote for a Democrat) and I did not support the war in Iraq. However, this book is just disgusting and misleading propaganda. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitney | 10/5/2012

    " This book is composed completely of letters from soldiers in Iraq that were written to Michael Moore or to their families that Michael Moore has published. I liked reading the informal first hand views of the soldiers about the war, views that the American media chooses not to show us. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda | 9/18/2012

    " More comments on how the soldiers liked Moore's film FARENHEIGHT than i could stomach. Good comments on experiences during the Middle East skirmish though... "

    " One letter from a soldier is the same as the rest in this book. Not that I minimize their sacrifices, but once you read one or two you've read them all. "

    " Boring. Just a bunch of letters sent to Michael Moore from soldiers serving over in Iraq. A good idea, but it feels cheap because Michael Moore sold himself out and used his name and photo for this project. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sabrina | 3/31/2011

    " This book appealed to my activist side. After reading it, I really wanted to do something. War is bad, it causes grief, terror, hurt, fear and anger, and serves no one but wealthy elitists, mmmkay? "
