The Untold War:
Inside the Hearts, Minds, and Souls of Our Soldiers


Philosopher, ethicist, and psychoanalyst Nancy Sherman explores the psychological and moral burdens borne by soldiers. By illuminating the extent to which wars are fought internally as well as externally, this book expands the national discussion about war and the men and women who fight our nation’s battles. With close-up looks at servicemen and women preparing for, experiencing, and returning home from war, Sherman probes the psyche of today’s soldiers, examining how they learn to kill and to leave the killing behind.  Bringing to light the moral quandaries soldiers face, Sherman bares the souls of our soldiers and the emotional landscape of soldiering.

Professor Sherman will discuss her book with the following distinguished panelists:

Matthew Flavin, Director of Veterans and Wounded Warrior Policy, Office of Public Engagement, Executive Office of the President

Stephen Xenakis, MD, Brigadier General (Ret.), former Commanding General of the Southeast Army Regional Medical Command
