Summary Casualties of war rage beyond the battlefield. As the ranks of women in the American military swell, so do incidents of rape. An estimated 30 per cent of servicewomen and at least one per cent of servicemen are sexually assaulted during their enlistment - not by the enemy, but at the hands of fellow soldiers. In fact, military women are more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Invisible War exposes a rape epidemic in the armed forces, investigating the institutions that perpetuate it as well as its profound personal and social consequences. The Invisible War introduces those who embraced their service with pride and professionalism, only to have their idealism crushed. Their chilling stories of violent sexual assault become even more rattling as they seek justice in a Kafkaesque military legal system, where only eight per cent of sexual assault cases are prosecuted, and only two per cent result in convictions. As a courageous few defy victimhood, they face their most challenging fight yet: penetrating a closed circuit where officers collude, cases are routinely swept under the rug, and few perpetrators are ever tried or convicted.
