Order your copy now for Mother's Day.

This book shares real-life stories of war and terror from the perspective of civilians, particularly mothers and refugees. Each story is presented verbatim and describes the effects of war on families, communities, and countries - from Iraq, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Syria, Afghanistan, and the United States.

Here is war examined from the intersection of history and individuals and delves into the leadership traits that bring nations to war. Includes a thoroughly readable critique of common assumptions civilians hold about war and why troops themselves are hesitant to share their own stories or discuss the psychological breakdown that occurs in their ranks. Learn more about the book.

Author and "military mom" Susan Galleymore continues to share the stories of those affected by war as founder of MotherSpeak, host of Raising Sand Radio, and GI Rights counselor.
