Flashes of War
From the perspectives of a U.S. soldier, a pragmatic jihadist, an Afghan mother, a ghost, and others, this short story collection questions stereotypes by bearing witness to the shared struggles of those touched by the War on Terror. Through personal moments of fear, introspection, confusion, and valor, Flashes of War serves as a universal plea for reconnection.
