Biography & Memoir • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

Newspapers, magazines, and books, as well as radio and TV, explore the broad issues and events of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, but only rarely can they get the real story experienced by the military personnel on the front lines and at home. OPERATION HOMECOMING is a compilation of writings by those experiencing the warfare directly. The collection includes eyewitness accounts, personal journals, short stories, and even poetry. Several readers share the narration, which gives each entry a unique tone. The entries start with the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon and continue nearly to the present. The stories are visceral, at times graphic. They are uniformly moving. Given that the war continues, some of the entries are almost poignant. Short biographical notes give the listener background on the authors. R.C.G.
