Review

'Garth Callender, a wounded veteran, tells his story of multiple combat tours with acid intensity. Stark, brutal and honest, After the Blast exposes the ghastly business of modern warfare. It is an uncompromising account that will shock some readers. Raw emotions, fears, loves, frustrations and anger are unflinchingly recalled. This book provides a rare insight to the harsh realities of Australia's contemporary conflicts.' Major General John Cantwell, AO, DSC, Author of Exit Wounds 'Garth Callender shows you what soldiers really think - and, more importantly, feel.' James Brown, author of Anzac's Long Shadow
