Long Shadows: Veterans' Paths
to Peace

Edited by David Giffey

The long shadows of war follow all that have participated in the horrors that come with militarism, but some of those involved have taken those shadows on a path towards peace.

The men and women of the Madison, Wisconsin area Clarence Kailin Chapter of Veterans for Peace group, along with editor David Giffey have brought together nineteen interviews that share the stories of veterans and their paths to peace going back as far as the Spanish Civil War, with an interview with Clarence Kailin up to Patrick Wilcox, an Iraqi war veteran.

Howard Zinn writes in the forward,

These are veterans with a point of view whose trajectories of belief had many different starting points, took many different paths, but in every case led to an abhorrence of war.

From these experiences many vets have learned that as Sid Podell states in his interview, "Warfare, no matter what the nature of the state or its declared purposes, solves no problems."

Each interview is a unique and very real perspective of war. Howard Zinnís forward begins:

There is an immense literature of war, so any new entry into that formidable body of narratives...needs to be looked at carefully to see if it adds something significant to our knowledge of war and those drawn into it. I believe that this book meets the test and informs us, in ways that we will not easily forget.
