Because the release of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars—now the longest wars in American history—the US army has struggled to recruit troops. It has replied, as Matt Kennard’s explosive investigative document makes transparent, by way of starting its doorways to neo-Nazis, white supremacists, gang participants, criminals of all stripes, the obese, and the mentally in poor health. in keeping with a number of years of reporting, Irregular military includes large interviews with extremist veterans and leaders of far-right hate groups—who spoke brazenly in their eagerness to have their fans gather army education for a coming household race conflict. As a record commissioned by way of the dep. of protection itself positioned it, “Effectively, the army has a ‘don’t ask, don’t inform’ coverage relating extremism.”
Irregular Army connects many of the battle on Terror’s worst crimes to this opening-up of the united states army. With hundreds of thousands of veterans now again within the US and household extremism at the upward thrust, Kennard’s booklet is a stark caution approximately power risks dealing with Americans—from their very own squaddies.
