Many hundreds of thousands of individuals have now fought in Iraq and Afghanistan since the First Gulf War was triggered by Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait 20 years ago. Thousands of soldiers and civilians have lost their lives in the ensuing conflicts and the War on Terror, and many more have been wounded, their lives changed forever by combat.
Behind every statistic and headline is an individual whose response to conflict is unique. Blood, Sweat and Steel goes behind the headlines to present personal stories from a cross-section of nationalities and services - from British Infantry and US Marines to Canadian doctors and former Iraqi captains. These eye-witness accounts shine a light on some of the big questions, provoked by the complexities and hardships of modern warfare, and also reveal the human side of soldiering.
Blood, Sweat and Steel is a testament to the bravery and heroism of those who serve in these campaigns. It is also a reflection on the cost of war in human terms, and the profound long-term effects that conflict has on combatants.
Author Peter Darman draws together the personal accounts of soldiers while providing background to the major campaigns; each conflict is set within its political context and timelines supply a narrative backdrop to the individual stories.
Blood, Sweat and Steel is published by New Holland Publishers, price £9.99.
