Redeployment

Phil Klay

Large print - 2014

A New York Times Bestseller Phil Klay sets in devastating relief the two worlds a soldier inhabits: one of extremes and one of loss. His stories reveal the intricate combination of monotony, bureaucracy, comradeship and violence that makes up a soldier's daily life at war, and the isolation, remorse, and despair that can accompany a soldier's homecoming. Written with hard-eyed realism and stunning emotional depth, Redeployment is poised to become a classic in the tradition of war writi...ng.
