What does a nation owe its military veterans? Gratitude, esteem, land grants, medical care, pensions, higher education? Or is serving in the armed forces of one’s country an obligation to be undertaken without any expectation of compensation? If veterans are to receive government aid, should a distinction be made between those who served in wartime or faced enemy fire and those who saw neither war nor combat? These questions have been answered in varying ways by the American people and their elected representatives since the Revolutionary War. Paid Patriotism? explores the genesis and growth of soldiers’ pensions throughout the nineteenth century, the Bonus experiment after the First World War, the passage and consequences of the GI Bill of Rights, the growth of the nation’s system of veterans’ hospitals, the evolution of veterans’ programs during the Cold War and Vietnam, the post-9/11 GI Bill, and contemporary scandals and reform efforts within the veterans’ bureaucracy, from its promotion to a cabinet department to wrongdoing in the Veterans Health Administration. James T. Bennett examines the complex and politically charged history and heated present-day debate of what the late columnist William Safire called the “most sacred cow” in Washington: the veterans’ bureaucracy. In the end, the United States and its citizens owe veterans a debt. But how has and how should that debt be honored—and at what cost?

The unforgettable saga of Jim Thompson, America's longest-held prisoner of war is a heartbreaking story of courage, and resilience in the wake of unthinkable torture in Northern Vietnam. Tom Philpott, a military historian and journalist, combines oral history and historical research to interlace Thompson's wrenching experience as a POW with the trials of his wife Alyce, who lived for nine years with the uncertainty of her husband's fate. Upon his release, Thompson's troubles only multiplied as his family endured the fallout of severe alcoholism, adultery, teen pregnancy and a murder charge against Thompson's son. Based on extensive interviews with Thompson, his family, and dozens of people close to him from various stages of his life, Glory Denied is an epic work about the far-reaching implications of one man's sacrifice and the larger story of a generation ravaged by the effects of the Vietnam War.
