Aaron Glantz, an independent journalist whose work has appeared in The Nation and The Progressive, is the author of How America Lost Iraq and co-author of  "Winter Soldier Iraq and Afghanistan: Eyewitness Accounts of the Occupations."  
The War Comes Home: Washington's Battle Against America's Veterans, published by University of California Press, is the first book to systematically document the governments neglect of soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Glantz reported extensively from Iraq during the first three years of the war, and has been reporting on the plight of veterans ever since, a devastating indictment of the Bush administration.

Norman Solomon, has written twelve books including War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death. A nationally syndicated columnist on media and politics, he is the founder and executive director of the Institute for Public Accuracy.

Comments on Aaron Glantz's work:

"A must-read for those who claim to support our troops."
Robert G. Gard, Lt. General, U.S. Army (ret.)

This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to make the phrase, 'Support the Troops,' more than a slogan." former US Senator Max Cleland
