After the War
2018-06-25

Grenier has written an exceptional book in After the War . A personal memoir of time spent in multiple war zones; this book serves as a window into horrific events and their effects on Grenier and those around him.
Grenier takes the reader through the very upsetting bureaucracy of The United Nations, the Canadian Government, and the Canadian Military. He also provides an illuminating, and articulate, play by play of his own PTSD, accompanied by informed and accessible explanations throughout. The fulcrum, for me, came while reading his explanation of how one's moral compass is effected by extremely intense moments. He suggests it is like taking a magnet to that compass and, effectively, "shaking the very foundation of how it works and pulling" the individual "in all directions". One is taken on the journey as we experience Grenier's struggle for his own re-calibration. The moving narrative serves to increase any empathy present in the reader and, impressively, to cultivate a path toward empathy should the reader be reluctant to acquire any. I loved this book. You may as well.
