From inside flap: ..."Where They Lay" resounds with admiration for those who fell and those who seek them. But Swift also raises hard questions about these recovery missions. Is it worth $100 million a year to try to bring home those lost in old wars? Is it worth the lives of today's soldiers?...And is the effort compromised by the corruption among native officials overseeing missions in their countries? As new conflicts draw our attention, "Where They Lay" throws brilliant light on war's cost to soldiers and to those they leave at home.
