Summary
"This graphic novel uses an ancient story of conflict, displacement, and longing for home to draw attention to the plight of the modern soldier eve of returning home after a grueling tour in Afghanistan, Sgt. Jack Brennan gathers his troops together for one final chat. But instead of a simple farewell, Brennan tells his soldiers the story of Homeras "Odyssey" connecting their experiences to the ancient epic. For instance, post-conflict drug addiction is related to Odysseusas menas reluctance to leave the land of the lotus eaters, and erratic, stimulus-seeking behavior by soldiers suffering from PTSD is compared Elpinoras death by misadventure on the island of Circe."--Provided by publisher
