內容簡介


「我們把他們送上戰場,就有責任深思這一切。」

◎2013年美國國家書評獎決選作品

近十年來,許多勇敢有才華的記者報導了各地戰事,但還沒有人緊密地將這個主題與心理學結合,但芬柯做到了。
在暢銷作《坦克車外》(The Good Soldiers),芬柯報導巴格達前線的故事,與美軍第十六團第二營的阿兵哥朝夕相處。
在《感謝您為國效力》中,芬柯再一次近身與二營的弟兄相處,只是這次地點在美國,就在弟兄們的家中;此時,他們都退伍了。

芬柯跟弟兄們一起度過這最緊密、最痛苦、最充滿希望的時刻,看著他們修復自己的人生。芬柯描繪出最難以抹滅、最真切的戰後生活樣貌,當中不只有阿兵哥,還有家人、朋友,以及真心要幫助他們的專業人員(雖然大多都沒成功)。
芬柯報導的功力獨樹一格,這些故事非常動人,一讀就不忍放下書冊。《感謝您為國效力》有助於我們了解另一種人生。

Now a Major Motion Picture Directed by American Sniper Writer Jason Hall and Starring Miles Teller

No journalist has reckoned with the psychology of war as intimately as David Finkel. In The Good Soldiers, his bestselling account from the front lines of Baghdad, Finkel embedded with the men of the 2-16 Infantry Battalion as they carried out the infamous “surge”. Now, in Thank You for Your Service, Finkel tells the true story of those men as they return home from the front-lines of Baghdad and struggle to reintegrate--both into their family lives and into American society at large.

Finkel is with these veterans in their most intimate, painful, and hopeful moments as they try to recover, and in doing so, he creates an indelible, essential portrait of what life after war is like--not just for these soldiers, but for their wives, widows, children, and friends, and for the professionals who are truly trying, and to a great degree failing, to undo the damage that has been done. Thank You for Your Service is an act of understanding, and it offers a more complete picture than we have ever had of two essential questions: When we ask young men and women to go to war, what are we asking of them? And when they return, what are we thanking them for?
