New. No dust jacket. Signed by author. 124 p. In this collection of essays, Camillo Mac Bica, Ph.D., a former Marine Corps Officer, Vietnam Veteran, and philosopher, provides a cogent analysis of why a veteran may not want to be thanked for his service in war. Mac s experiential and theoretical perspective is both gut-wrenching and concise. The Philosopher speaks from the mind, Mac writes, the warrior from where it hurts. With simplicity, poignancy, and power, this book, together with future installments of the War Legacy Series, works to dispel the mythology of nobility and heroism by providing a window into the reality of war and its devastating effects upon all who experience its horrors.
