Elliot Ackerman with Robert Cocuzzo

Combat Marine veteran Elliot Ackerman, awarded the Purple Heart, Silver Star, and Bronze Star, understands war from a boots-on-the ground perspective. His writing reaches beyond the political and cultural differences that divides us to create a story that takes us to the other side, the human story of war. With two new books, Waiting for Eden and Places and Names: War, Revolution and Returning, Ackerman witnesses the truth of war from the perspectives of fiction and nonfiction.
