Matt Gallagher recommends
All the Ruined Men (2022)
Bill Glose
"This accomplished book is more than a collection of war tales. It's a reckoning."
Burn-In (2020)
August Cole and P W Singer
"A speculative work about a dark tomorrow, Burn-In brims with the vibrancy of real, layered human conflict. P.W. Singer and August Cole understand that stories of moral tribulation transcend space and time, and imbue this bold, splendid story with it. There's more life and imagination in this novel about the robot future than most books of today will ever manage."
Pieces of Me (2018)
Natalie Hart
"Pieces of Me churns with love and rage and hope and terror, as only the best war books can. Natalie Hart writes like a born storyteller, and she uses that gift here to explore how the Iraq War lingers in the dark corners of souls desperate to move on from it. Readers are in for a ride."
