Peace Warriors

Twenty years after The Boys from the Barracks—chronicling the attempted coups in the 1980s—Criselda Yabes returned to the military in the field of Muslim Mindanao,
where the struggle to find peace is taking place to end one of the country’s longest-running insurgencies. Says writer Patricio Abinales: “(This book) is, as far as I know, the first intimate look at everyday life inside military camps. Yabes has given us portrait after portrait of soldiers and officers who fight the country’s internal wars—in all their nobility and their flaws.”
