Description

Evans discovers that the veterans of the 1991 Persian Gulf War "have a disability rate three times as high as that of Vietnam and World War II veterans," and that this trend may be the result of using depleted uranium weapons. His eight-chapter series takes an in-depth look at the science of depleted uranium weapons, centralizing his focus around Matt Rohman, a Gulf War veteran who lives every day in pain. Evans explores different concepts of radiobiology, geology, radiation physics, and health science, and takes a look at what depleted uranium weapons could mean for today's soldier.
