This book expands the national discussion about war and the men and women who make up our army by shedding light on soldiers' inner experiences. Combining moving interviews with brilliant philosophical and psychological insights, Sherman reveals the moral dilemmas that soldiers face, the stressors of active duty, and the difficult process of reacclimating to civilian life upon their return from the warzone. Bringing to light the moral quandaries soldiers face - torture, the thin line between fighters and civilians, and the anguish of killing even in a just war - Sherman probes the emotional landscape of soldiering. At the heart of the book are interviews with soldiers, from the current campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, but also from Vietnam, World War I and World War II.

The First World War is remembered largely for the immense sacrifice in life and limb of Canadian soldiers. In Fight or Pay, Desmond Morton turns his eye to the stories of those who paid in lieu of fighting - the wives, mothers, and families left behind when soldiers went to war. A pan-Canadian story, Fight or Pay brings to light the lives of thousands of valiant women whose sacrifices have been overlooked in previous histories. It is an incisive and honest look at the beginnings of a social welfare system that Canadians have come to think of as intrinsic to citizenship.
