How does it prepare a young man or woman for combat? At West Point, Elizabeth Samet reads classic and modern works of literature with Americas future military elite, and in this stirring memoir she chronicles the ways in which war has transformed her relationship to the books she and her students read together.

While fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, Samets former students share their thoughts on the poetry of Wallace Stevens, the fiction of Virginia Woolf and J. M. Coetzee, the epics of Homer, and the films of Bogart and Cagney. And their letters in turn prompt Samet to wonder exactly what she owes to cadets in the classroom. Soldiers Heart is an honest and original reflection on the relationship between art and life.
