what the f*** was that all about

what the f*** was that all about explores moral injury - a wound to the soul. An assault on the heart waged by grief, guilt, shame and anger - normal human reactions when our basic understanding of right and wrong has been blown away by war. A place of darkness… with an exit. Veteran author Tom Barber was a Vietnam Era medic unable to imagine the trauma of combat. Trying to help those physically and emotionally crippled by the chaos of war brought to life feelings of survivor guilt and helplessness that would haunt him for years. Alcohol killed that pain, then alcohol addition almost killed him. Tom is an award winning illustrator of science fiction and fantasy paperback book jackets.
