Description
 
Tomas Young’s War is the tragic yet life affirming story of a paralyzed Iraq
War veteran who spent his last ten years battling heroically with his injuries,
while courageously speaking against America's wars.

Based on hours of interviews with Young and those close to him, the book puts
the reader alongside Young as he struggles with life as a paralyzed veteran,
suffering frustration and humiliation as he attempts to reenter society and
resume as normal an existence as possible. It shows his fight to balance his
precarious health with his drive to speak out for veterans care and against the
war, and the impact his catastrophic injuries had on his family and his
relationships.

This emotional and powerful book sheds light on many crucial but often
overlooked issues such as veterans’ care, public attitudes toward the
disabled, medical marijuana, and the terminally ill. Tomas Young’s War shares
everything, as unflinchingly honest as Tomas himself: the depression, the pain,
the love, and laughter...the life of this man whose world was turned upside down
by an Iraqi bullet more than ten years ago. Throughout, it serves as a powerful
testament to the true cost of war.
