Although these soldiers were on the same tour, they all encountered different experiences, and so while the time frame is the same, their perspectives are inevitably different. Included here are the diaries of Lt John Thornton, who sadly lost his life just two weeks before the end of the tour, a Padre, a CO, a 2IC, and a member of Lt Thorntons section. The diary of Lt Thorntons brother, Ian, who returned from Helmand in 2012, provides an example of the war four years later and provides further context to the original tour diaries.With an introduction that pulls the diaries together and puts them in context, this book provides a chance to look at what changes when the men and women come home, and what they learned from the tour.
