A powerful, beautifully written, timely reminder of the continuing horror of postwar life for many soldiers returning from combat With the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, once again America’s men and women who have seen war close-up are suddenly expected to return seamlessly to civilian life. In Flashback,Penny Coleman tells the cautionary and timely story of posttraumatic stress disorder in the hope that we can sensitively assist those veterans who return from combat in need of help, and the families struggling to support them. “A remarkable combination of painful experience and thoughtful interpretation. Coleman concludes with a moving plea that ‘we accept the truth that war itself is an illness that sickens our society as surely and in much the same way as it sickens our citizens and our soldiers.’ Few authors have done more to confront that sickness as a step toward cure.” —Dr. Robert Jay Lifton, author of Home from the War Penny Coleman, the author of Village Elders, lives with her family in New York City.

In April, 1968, six weeks after arriving in Vietnam, a young marine becomes the sole survivor of an incident of friendly fire involving over 200 Marines. Severely wounded physically and emotionally, he returns to the States unable to understand his experience and too ashamed and afraid to talk about it. Instead he buries the memories of that tragic day, and as the doctors rebuild his body he tries to build a normal life. On the surface, he is successful; he has a beautiful home, a family, and a good career. He ignores the uneasy feelings that sometimes make the world seem unreal, that make him feel like a fugitive. Then, more than 30 years after he almost died in Vietnam, his memories try to resurface. After a series of terrifying nightmares and flashbacks he discovers that in order to save his future, he must resurrect his past. To my Readers: In this memoir, I've shared my combat experience in Vietnam and my struggles with posttraumatic stress disorder. The nature of war does not change; combat veterans of the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, the War in Afghanistan, and the Iraqi War all have something in common - a heightened risk of PTSD. If you are a combat veteran experiencing problems similar to mine, I hope that my story encourages you to seek and accept help. - J.W. Clark. After his law enforcement career was cut short by increasingly severe PTSD symptoms, J.W. Clark returned to a semi-rural area of Southern California, where he lives with his wife of six years.

Desperately searching for a way to recover her memory, a young American woman on the run must unlock a terrible secret from her past Discovered in a ditch by the side of a country road in France, Eve has only good American dentistry and a ferry ticket scribbled with Arabic letters to suggest her identity. That, and a bullet wound in her brain that she miraculously survives, even as it destroys her memory. Only a few scattered violent images remain—or are they dreams?—along with one undeniable physical fact: she has had a child. When the nuns who have sheltered her for a year are brutally massacred, Eve realizes that whoever she was in her past life, she had powerful enemies. Just half a step ahead of her pursuers, she lights out for Morocco in an attempt to retrace her steps and discover her past. Away from the convent, she begins to discover things that startle her—among them, her capacity for violence and her facility with guns. Was she a spy? Who is the dying man in her nightmares? As she searches through spice-scented souks and glamorous nightclubs for clues to her past, she has to figure out who is after her, and why—before it's too late. Within scenes of heart-stopping terror, Jenny Siler's lyrical writing and memorable images stand out. As Marilyn Stasio said of Easy Money in The New York Times Book Review, Siler's is "a voice that gets your attention like a rifle shot."
