Places and Names -- Elliot Ackerman

Staff Pick

A decorated former Marine turned journalist turned author, Elliot Ackerman has written three acclaimed novels since 2015 and now a memoir. In Places and Names, he offers a real-life accounting, writing with the same urgency, passion, and attention characteristic of his novels and with the same penetrating examination of the meaning and costs of war. He does this through a series of essays as he travels to conflict zones, old battlefields, and refugee camps, looking back on his war experiences from different angles. The result is not only an intensely personal book about the purpose and impact of war but also a meditation on the larger meaning of the past two decades of America’s ill-fated involvement in the Middle East.
