Selected New Books

The League of Wives

This book covers a little-known story -- the true story of the fierce band of women who battled Washington--and Hanoi--to bring their husbands home from the jungles of Vietnam. 

Invisible Veterans

Combining research with narrative, this book exposes common threads of lived experience and reviews the latest data on military women and their healthy reintegration into civilian society.  Through the stories of these courageous yet entirely human women, readers learn about the experiences of a new and often forgotten generation of veterans; about the challenges surrounding family and career choices that millions of American women face; and ultimately, about sacrifice, resiliency, loss, and love.

It Shouldn't Be This Hard to Serve Your Country

The former VA secretary describes his fight to save veteran health care from partisan politics and how his efforts were ultimately derailed by a small group of unelected officials.  In this uninhibited memoir, Shulkin opens up about why the government has long struggled to provide good medical care to military veterans and the plan he had to solve these problems.
