|Summary, etc.:||Section 60: Arlington National Cemetery is the powerful contemporary biography of a five-acre plot where many of those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan have been laid to rest alongside service members from earlier wars. What emerges is a portrait of our national cemetery as a living, breathing community, and a narrative about how improvised explosive devices, suicide bombs, and enemies who blend in with local populations have changed the nature and aftermath of conflict. Several of the newest recruits for Section 60 have been brought there by suicide or post-traumatic stress disorder, a war injury newly described but dating to ancient times.-- The acclaimed author of On Hallowed Ground, using Section 60 of the Arlington National Cemetery as a window into the latest wars, recounts stories of courage and sacrifice by fallen heroes and how they are honored and remembered by those they left behind.|
