ABOUT THE BOOK:
An award-winning journalist tells the hidden story of American soldiers turning against an unjust war.
Despite tremendous public sentiment against the American-led occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, ordinary citizens and US soldiers continue to die every day. Despite promises from politicians of both parties, an unjust and un winnable war grinds on with no clear end in sight. But as award-winning journalist Dahr Jamail shows, a new generation of American soldiers is beginning to take opposition into their own hands.
As one of the first and few unembedded Western journalists to report the truth about how the United States has destroyed, not liberated, Iraqi society in his book Beyond the Green Zone, Jamail now investigates the under-reported but growing antiwar resistance of American GIs, embodied in new organizations like Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW). Gathering the stories of these courageous men and women, Jamail shows us that far from “supporting our troops,” politicians have betrayed them at every turn. Finally, Jamail shows us that the true heroes of the criminal tragedy of the Iraq War are those brave enough to say no.
