Summary
"More than 2.7 million Americans have served in Afghanistan or Iraq since September 11, 2001. C. J. Chivers reported from both wars from their beginnings. The Fighters conveys the physical and emotional experience of war as lived by six combatants: a fighter pilot, a corpsman, a scout helicopter pilot, a grunt, an infantry officer, and a Special Forces sergeant. Chivers captures their courage, commitment, sense of purpose, and ultimately their suffering, frustration, and moral confusion as new enemies arise and invasions give way to counterinsurgency duties for which American forces were often not prepared."--
