Since the launch of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars- the longest wars in American history – the US military has struggled to recruit troops. It has responded, as Matt Kennards’ explosive investigative report makes clear, by opening its doors to neo-Nazis, white supremacists, gang members, criminal of all stripes, the overweight, and the mentally ill. Based on several years of reporting, Irregular Army includes extensive interviews with extremist veterans and leaders of far-right hate groups – who spoke openly of their eagerness to have their followers acquire military training for a coming domestic race war.
