Courage and Strength

Published: 17 Dec 2012

A profoundly moving collection of stories and poems, this book is written by men and women of the armed forces affected by combat and by the exacting demands of military service. There are stories from many arena and eras: Afganistan, Iraq, the Gulf, Falkland Islands, Northern Island, the Cold War and World War II. Many of the works recount moments of reflection in the field, while others deal with the mental torment that can last a lifetime. There are rich themes of love, of appreciation and of a deeply shared humanity.

The authors seek to share their experience through many voices that embrace both poignant detail along with irreverent wit and sometimes biting humour! This anthology provides the reader with an opportunity to reflect upon their own lifetime experience and their own need of courage in the face of adversity. The truths provided by these writers will form a treasure trove of strength for any reader to return to again and again.

Excerpt from Introduction:

This volume is full of astonishing work. It is painfully and often brilliantly written and in the midst I found something wonderful about the human spirit. In Lee Harrison’s poem From a Veteran to a Veteran, I found a life sustaining PS when he wrote “There is always HOPE.” This book has hope in it. Thank you for supporting Combat Stress.
