Brooke King has been asked over and over by interviewers what it's like to be a woman in combat, but the answer she gives is never exactly what the public wants to know. The answer they are seeking lies in the gory details of war-the sex, death, violence, and reality of it all-as she experienced it. In War Flower, King breaks her silence and finally reveals the truth about her experience as a soldier in Iraq. Find out what happens when the sex turns into secret affairs, the violence is turned up to 11, and the hate for a country she knew nothing about as a nineteen year old becomes that much more sickening to the thirty-year-old mother that writes it all out before her PTSD fades the memories into oblivion. War Flower is a study of violence as it pertains to a girl that went to war and returned home a woman. By telling her truth, King examines what violence does to a woman and how inherited that violence can be when that woman becomes a mother. King's memoir is a meditation on the consequences of violence through generations and how a war zone, from either side of the battle, is inevitably intertwined with tragedy and the loss of one's self.
