The findings from a five-year, international study on sexual assault and harassment in the US Armed Forces were documented in the first edition of this book written by veteran and subject matter expert Terri Spahr Nelson and published by Haworth Press in 2002 and later by Routledge Press. The second edition, published in 2015, offers updated recommendations, insights and new sections for military leaders and for family/loved ones of victims of military sexual trauma.

This book is an excellent resource for military leaders, SARCs and advocates, as well as victims of military sexual trauma--both active duty Service members and veterans. 

The second edition of For Love of Country further strengthens the call for continued action to address this ongoing issue and to assist victims and Commanders on how to move forward.

A FEW OF THE MANY REVIEWS:

Nelson's book makes strong recommendations for a serious national response to rape and sexual harassment within the U.S. Military . . . But in the end, she argues, the crisis must be addressed because justice demands it: "It is time to confront rape and sexual harassment in the military if for no other reason than because it is the right thing to do." -- Gregory Flannery, CityBeat

A COMPELLING DOCUMENTARY. . . . Dramatically juxtaposes facts with personal accounts in a way that vividly brings out the heartbreaking reality of this ongoing problem.”--The Portland Alliance

Likely to be OF GREAT VALUE to survivors of rape or harassment in the military...clearly demonstrates that victims, who may never have told anyone of their experiences, are not alone. The book should also be used by government and military agencies in formulating policy on rape and sexual harassment in the military. A sensitive and sometimes moving approach to the subject matter, with a good mix of personal accounts and supporting official documents and statistics.”--H-Net

This book is extremely validating for me. It is a relief that women (and men) are finally able to talk about the horrible assaults they suffered while serving their country and that someone is listening and writing it down. This is an important book on a serious subject that has been long neglected. It is imperative that military leadership take notice. Fascinating and informative.”-- Amazon.com reviewer from Baker City, OR

"T. S. Nelson's detailed account of rape and sexual harassment in the American armed forces is a welcome addition to the literature on sexual violence... This is a very important project and the author should be highly praised both for achieving her aim with sensitivity, and for providing another potentially healing space for victim-survivors to share their stories; her commitment to the victims she writes about cannot be questioned. The book may be of value to psychologists and counselors treating victims of rape by members of the military, as it will give them a deeper understanding of the context in which the rape occurred, and an insight into the possible mixed and confused feelings of servicewomen victims. It should also be used by government and military agencies in formulating policy on rape and sexual harassment in the military. Finally and perhaps most importantly, it is likely to be of great value to survivors of rape or harassment in the military, as it clearly demonstrates that victims, who may never have told anyone of their experiences, are not alone." --Miranda Alison, School of Politics, Queen's University of Belfast, Northern Ireland, full review published in H-Minerva, Quarterly Report on Women and the Military.

"This book is an indispensable reference for military service members, for professionals working with victims of military abuse, and for those who are seeking to stop victimization.” --Janice Rench, LSW , author and national consultant on sexual assault

"I would recommend this book as standard training for all officer candidates. The standard needs to be raised. Ms. Nelson, with candor and grace, says how high.” --H. Adam, US Air Force veteran
