Veteran Friendships Across Lifetimes : Brothers and Sisters in Arms Hardback
by Jamie Ward
Veteran Friendships across Lifetimes: Brothers and Sisters in Arms seeks to add to the larger conversation about the "band of brothers" phenomenon by focusing on stories of survival after service members return home.
Based on five years of research, including in-depth interviews with fifty servicemen and women, this book explores the interrelationship between camaraderie and contentment.
Ward specifically looks at how military friendships translate from the battlefield into civilian life and how these friendships assist soldiers in gaining peace with the past, happiness in the present, and hope for the future.
This text uses the themes of strength, kinship, and resilience to discuss the bonds and friendships that are created and maintained despite the savagery of the wartime experience.
