A must-read for anyone who needs to understand what today's combat vets endure upon return.
Soft Spots, by Clint Van Winkle. Paperback.

Written by a Marine with first-hand experience, this book takes the reader through an incredible narrative of Marines in a combat zone in Iraq. It bounces back and forth between the past and Van Winkle's return stateside showing the reader the trials and traumas associated with both lifestyles, while vividly displaying the struggles to regain control of his mind and the grip of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). 

"Nothing gets held back in Soft Spots...lacerating honesty, the narrative is dreamlike and surreal." 

--The Washington Post

 

"[Van Winkle's] book describes his spiral from the inanity of war to the insanity of the world-weary...Happy trails? No. Trauma? Yes, this is how one veteran carries his war."

--Marine Corps Times

 

"Van Winkle’s detailed account of how combat shattered his mind is as disturbing as his war imagery."

--Washington City Paper

 

"The emotional impact of this memoir will reside with you long after the final page is turned."

-- North County Outlook (WA)

 

"A brutally honest account of war and its aftermath

-- The Virginian-Pilot 

 

"[Van Winkle] gives voice to the thousands of forgotten soldiers returning home from Iraq, or those whose souls are still stuck there. He gives us his poor haunted head, only mapped out and numbered, and the effect will make you weep." 

--The Post and Courier (Charleston, S.C.)
