Praise

“These stories leave the reader with a profound sense of [our troops’] selfless sacrifice and, sadly, a profound sense of the gulf that separates the ethos of the military from the contemporary currents of American life….Schultz and Chandrasekaran never suggest that war is good. But the stories they tell are a welcome reminder of what soldiers have always known: that out of difficulty and trauma come a sense of spiritual self-worth and a dedication to the service of others.”
            —Maj. Gen. Robert H. Scales, The Wall Street Journal

“Full, vibrant profiles of men and women forever marked by war, who continue to endure and transform both themselves and their communities.”
            —The Washington Post

“Harrowing and heroic stories of war and coming home.”
            —Maureen Dowd, The New York Times

“Schultz and Chandrasekaran couldn’t be more on point…For Love of Country is important reading.”
            —The Huffington Post

“[Schultz and Chandrasekaran] are on target in calling for a societal salute to America’s new generation of veterans.”
            —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

 “Howard Schultz and Rajiv Chandrasekaran have…allowed readers everywhere an up close look at what our country’s war heroes and veterans do for us. The scenes to which we’re made privy are at times heartbreaking, inspiring—or both.”
            —Everyday eBook

“Filled with inspiring narratives.”
            —Library Journal

“Inspiring….will certainly move readers who have served in the military, as well as…fans of military histories and those who have close contact with the courageous soldiers who put their lives on the line.”
            —Kirkus

“This splendid book should be read by every American. It is a story of heroes, of sacrifice, of valor. But it is also a story of resilience, recovery, and a continuing desire to serve our country and its citizens. You must be made of stone to read this and not shed tears. But the book’s message is that, after the tears, we must not forget the sacrifices those in uniform and their families have made for all of us over the last thirteen years; we must welcome back into our communities those who served not just with thanks and open arms, but with respect, admiration, and new lives and careers worthy of all they have done for all of us.”
            —Robert M. Gates, author of Duty

“A truly inspirational, uplifting book, one that will fill you with pride in America’s new Greatest Generation in war and in peace.”  
            —General David H. Petraeus, U.S. Army, Retired
