    1 thought on “Tomas Young's War”

    1. Really tough book to read but a really important one. There's not enough of truth and reality when it comes to the public seeing the horrors of war, and that's a very dangerous thing. Especially in a war like the Iraqi war which was, by all accounts, a war we never should have been in, and that affected such a small percentage of the population. Basically, it was far too easy for most of the USA to turn a blind eye to the consequences of this war, which were great. Not the least of which, for th [...]

    2. A good read and worth the time. The chronology seems odd at times, but Tomas's story is one that cannot be forgotten. It would be nice if society could learn from it. No More War.

    3. If you want an up lifing book this is it. I was so impressed by the emotional story of Tomas Young. What he has gone thru is very inspiring.

    4. This is the story of Tomas Young, an Iraq War vet, who was severely wounded after less than a week in Iraq. After taking a bullet in the chest, Tomas was paralyzed from the chest down. Despite insufficient health care and a horrid cocktail of physical and mental complications, Tomas went on to become a pro-soldier, anti-Iraq-War activist. This book captures the hidden side of war (especially the war in Iraq) and the tragic story of one soldier, which is sadly the story of many soldiers. But it a [...]

    5. I didn't love this book. I liked reading it, but it didn't move me in any meaningful way. The writing itself is engaging. No complaints there. What I learned from this tale is that a young man was really upset that he got hurt trying to kill Iraqi civilians instead of Afghani civilians. Young is still pro-war, but somehow against wars that are based on lies. Well, guess whatl wars are based on lies, deception, and immoral justifications. Our intervention in Iraq was not a mistake. It was a delib [...]

    6. As I sit pondering this book, I am reminded of a talk I heard by a mother back in 1982 or '83. She said that she would stop being pro-choice when the government stopped sending our babies into wars to be killed when they're older. I think this should be required reading for every member of Congress in every state and in Washington, D.C. and for every would-be-president. I also think every WASP man, of any age, should read it.Mark Wilkerson's book is eloquently written as it addresses Tomas Young [...]

    7. I RECEIVED A COPY OF THIS BOOK FROM GOOD READS. TTHIS WAS AN AMAZING STORY ABOUT HOW THOMAS YOUNG ARMY SOLDIER WHO WAS SERVING IN IRAQ. HE WAS PARALYZED AS RESULT OF AN ATTACK. ONCE HE WAS HOME HE STRUGGLED TO RECOVER FROM HIS INJURIES. HE JOINED OTHER VETS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST WAR. tHE PHOTOS AND STORIES WERE HEART WRENCHING. i WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS STORY TO OTHERS.

    8. This book details on the history and the government at that time 2001 and the horrible attack to the twin towers and all the soldiers that had to suffer unfortunately. all the courage that Thomas went through and his opposition to an illegal war

    9. Difficult to read about Tomas' struggle, but essential to understand what our veterans endure. War is often glamorized, but this book gives the reader insight into the ravages of war and the mistreatment of veterans.
