War brings nothing but misery. War extracts more than a pound of flesh from every man, woman or child taught to hold a gun. The trauma, grief, and shock alone ensure that even the survivors are prisoners of war in their own mental asylum. The pain seems terrible because there are so many lives taken or at least damaged.

Let us have a look at a few photographs clicked by photographers David Jay and James Nachtwey, who have been documenting the lives of young and gravely injured American soldiers post their return from wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The grim reality of war can be seen in the eyes of these veterans. These pictures depict soldiers and civilians, embroiled in tragic wars.
