Publisher's Summary

Every war has its "signature wounds", injuries inflicted by frightening new weapons and tactics the U.S. military has never faced before. Blistered flesh from mustard gas in World War I. Petroleum burns from oil and gas igniting on the surface of the Pacific in World War II. And now, lost legs, hands, and most devastating of all, genitals, as a result of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in today's war in Afghanistan. Men's Health contributing editor Bob Drury, a veteran reporter of both the Afghan and Iraq wars, delivers his most hard-hitting and important dispatch yet - the unforgettable accounts of U.S. soldiers who have suffered these very personal wounds. Their intense tales of battlefield survival are just a prologue to the unimaginable fights they face once they're stateside. This is essential listening for truly understanding what our fighting forces put on the line - and lose - every single day.

    "Great book"

    One never thinks about a man going over seas and not to have him come back with his penis damaged or gone

    How many wives or girlfriend 20 to 30 years want to live a life with NOT being able to have real sex again.

    Forget having a baby

    They did not talk about women who may suffer a massive injury to there vagina and for them to come home with such an important part of both a man and a woman's life.

    No one goes from the Army to being a nun or priest as soon as they get home

    We need to do everything a country can do to help a soldier coming home deformed that way

    Have your eyes opened like you never have before
