Description

"The Tender Soldier" is the first deeply reported narrative nonfiction account of the Human Terrain System, a controversial, experimental Army program that embeds civilian social scientists, including anthropologists, psychologists and sociologists, with front line combat units to provide cultural knowledge and intelligence to soldiers and marines. The program was developed in the early years of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and launched its first field team in Khost, Afghanistan in 2007.
