New on my to-read list: Hidden Wounds: A Soldier’s Burden. LEX 18 viewer and author, Nate Brookshire sent me his book…it’s on my shelf and I’m excited to dive in. The book will officially be available November 15th.
About the book:
This story started coming together in the spring of 2004 when two Officer Candidates decided to write a book about an American and a German soldier whose lives and families become intertwined on the battlefield in the last stages of WWII. Action and inaction has a generational impact as the main character reflects on his choices and deals with the guilt of participating in a war crime. Is it too late at the age of 84 to make things right? The story has evolved into a discussion of PTSD, addiction, suicide awareness / prevention and forgiveness.
